Lot Essay

The most graphically economical of all of Lautrec's posters, Aristide Bruant dans son cabaret is also one of the best known. The third of four posters of Bruant, the subject is shown in his trademark hat, cape and red scarf. The massiveness of the figure here reflects the strength of Bruant as a personality both on and off the stage.
