In this lecture, the distinguished art historian, writer and print collector Dr Peter Webb will use original film and sound recordings to investigate the work of Toulouse Lautrec and Paris of the 1890s. We will look at Lautrec’s posters of the Moulin Rouge singers and dancers, as well as works by his friends Manet, Degas and Van Gogh.

Dr Webb has lectured widely in the UK and abroad, and he retired as Reader in the History of 19th and 20th Century Art at Middlesex University in 1996. He has written books on the erotic arts, the surrealist painter Leonor Fini, and on David Hockney, whom he has known since the 1970s.
