Please help support TroveStar. Why?

Toulouse-Lautrec - Caudieux Caudieux
Title Caudieux
Year 1893
Medium Lithograph



Description: Toulouse-Lautrec delivers a rather unflattering portrait of the café-concert artist, Caudieux, in this poster advertising the star's performance. Caudieux's talents lay as a comic and the artist has certainly made him a figure of fun here: he's shown as an ageing performer, portly and overly made up, mincing across the stage with pursed lips. Caudieux was known as the 'Human Cannon' which perhaps explains why Toulouse-Lautrec has chosen to depict him in motion.

Size: 47 1/2 x 35 5/8 in.
