Queen of joy by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Queen of joy by Henri de Toulouse Lautrec

In 1798 a new type of engraving was invented – lithography. For color lithography, which appeared in the 1830s, several stones were used and, applying images on top of each other, received a multi-color impression.

Lautrec created more than 300 lithographs. He considered them no less significant for his creativity than pictures, always exposing them together. The most memorable lithographs of Lautrec were, of course, his posters. Above shows the lithography made by the artist for the novel “The Queen of Joy”, and one of the most famous posters of the artist, which represents the poster of the performance of the dancer Jane Avril.
