Dancer (Wheel) by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Dancer (Wheel) by Henri de Toulouse Lautrec

New dances, appearing in the 1890s, enjoyed a frenzied success among the Parisians. Lautrec, keen on them no less than others, tried, without delaying the cases in a long box, to capture them in sketches, often preceding full-fledged paintings and lithographs.

In this work he is interested only in the frenzied movement of the dancer fluttering around the stage – everything else merges into the background and resembles a sketch.
