Nan Brewer, the museum’s Lucienne M. Glaubinger Curator of Works on Paper, will present a pre-film gallery talk focused on Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s depictions of women performers in Paris’s fin de siècle cafés, cabarets, and dance halls, such as the famous Moulin Rouge.
The gallery talk will be followed by a screening of John Huston’s classic fictional film, Moulin Rouge (1952) about Toulouse-Lautrec’s life in bohemian Paris. This British drama stars Jose Ferrer, Zsa Zsa Gabor, and Christopher Lee and won the Silver Lion at the 1953 Venice Film Festival.
This program is presented in conjunction with IU Cinema’s “Films on Art” series and is sponsored by Marsha R. Bradford and Harold A. Dumes.
