This event has ended.

In Paris at the end of the 19th century, prints that up until that time were just for transmitting information or a means of reproduction became the latest medium for artists to widen the potential of expression. These artists elevated print to the level of art and created the origin of 20th century graphic art. At the same time in Paris, there was a flowering of mass culture with spending, amusement and pleasure. The world was filled with images as never before in the form of posters on the streets and in theatres, and illustrations in books, and a wide range of people came to enjoy art on a daily basis. This exhibition is jointly planned by the Van Gogh Museum which boasts the world’s largest collection of late 19th century prints, and the Mitsubishi Ichigokan Museum which houses a collection of lithographs and posters by Toulouse-Lautrec. This exhibit will bring together selected, superbly preserved works of graphic art, by Toulouse-Lautrec and other representative artists of the late 19th century.
