This exhibition showcased Krannert Art Museum 's substantial holdings of more than 40 lithographs, posters, and drawings by the French 19th-century artist Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and images by other French artists whose works either prefigured or paralleled Toulouse-Lautrec's artistic concerns.

Programming included a dialogue lecture discussion for the scholarly community by two art historians, a public talk on Toulouse-Lautrec as an innovator of graphic design and the use of the poster as an advertising medium, a public talk on avant-garde Parisian theater, and a "French Flicks" film series featuring three classic French films, including the original version of Moulin Rouge. Catalogue available.
