La Bohème. Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and the Masters of Montmartre the successful exhibition of the Institute for Cultural Exchange is moving to its next venue: From June 24 to August 14, 2022, Toulouse-Lautrec’s extensive lithographic poster work from the collection of Muséé d’Ixelles is on view at the Münchner Künstlerhaus in Munich, Germany. Toulouse-Lautrec, like no one else, was able to capture the atmosphere of the Parisian nightlife through reduced, but expressive forms as well as intense coloring.  Accompanied by works of Lautrec’s predecessors and contemporaries, like Alfons Mucha, Théophile-Alexandre Steinlen or Félix Vallotton, the exhibition gives a profound insight into the fascinating world of the art poster around 1900.
