I first fell in love with the graphic works by Toulouse-Lautre in college.  Posters of his magnificent advertisements abundantly covered my dormitory room walls.  I still love his work.

A stained glass design by the artist. I had no idea he had worked in this medium.

The exhibition was excellent.  I am becoming a very lazy art historian. I’m sorry to say that I don’t enjoy muscling my way through exhibitions anymore.  I am spoiled because, once upon a time, I could view these shows privately.  It’s not nice to be just another visitor.  Boo hoo.

Still, the show was magnificent and I’m glad I saw it!
