Description

Aristide Bruant was a successful singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur who ran a cabaret in the Montmartre quarter of Paris. When he began performing at up-scale café-concerts on the Champs-Élysées, he immediately commissioned Toulouse-Lautrec to market his rough street persona in a manner that would appeal to a bourgeois audience. Seizing on Bruant’s trademark costume of a wide-brimmed hat, cape, and red scarf, Lautrec designed a sparse yet iconic image that promoted both the performer’s career as well as his own.

The vintage poster was created in 1893.  The lithograph was recreated using the same hand pulled  process on a vintage press in 1997 by renown chromist, Jean Pierre Remond.
