Description: designed for the singer Aristide Bruant. Toulouse-Lautrec created four posters for Bruant in 1892. This one advertises Bruant's café-cabaret at the Eldorado on Boulevard de Strasbourg in Paris. Aristide Bruant was a satirical singer who is shown here as a powerful, almost menacing figure. The poster owes its impact to the simplicity of the outlines and the palette, which comprises solid blocks of five colours.
