Paris in the 1890s was a city bursting with entertainment. Women were at the center of this spectacle, and no one captured their performances with more panache and sensitivity than Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Explore Lautrec’s prints, drawing, and posters of women of the stage, from distinguished actress Marcel Lender to the innovative dancer Loïe Fuller, to now-forgotten performers with evocative names like Mademoiselle Pois Vert (Miss Green Pea).
