Toulouse-Lautrac (T-L) was one of the first artists I "discovered" back in my school days - I was living near Washington DC and saw a few of his posters/art works in the National Gallery of Art. Frankly this museum wasn't my prime interest for visiting Albi, as I wanted to see the "red" city and learn more about its history.... 更多
Was expecting much more since I am a big art fan. The posters you can buy show up more favorably than the actual works at the museum. First time in my life have I encountered this bizarre experience. Even the gift shop was a disappointment since this is their chance to make a lot of money. Signing to museum very... 更多
This museum offers a very comprehensive look at Lautrec; both in terms of his family background and the development of his craft. It requires some hiking through its extensive displays and different venues. Be sure to leave enough time -- it opens at 2PM and requires some attention to detail for real comprehension. The setting is magnificent and allows views... 更多
We specifically came to Albi to see the Lautrec museum and his works on display. His artwork housed and displayed here is extensive and spans most of his life. We were very pleased both with the museum itself and the Lautrec exhibits---they have other artists' works on display but come for Lautrec ,you won't be disappointed. They also have a... 更多
To be honest I did not take to T-L's style; too raw, sketchy, unfinished. Much of the interest is in the life and times of the artist, e.g. his depiction of "low life" in 19th century Montmartre; less so in his technical abilities. But some may love it. You need to love T-L because most of the work on show... 更多
Until early we arrived in Albi we were ignorant of the fact that the artist was a sone of the city-although he did leave for Paris at the age of eight. We concentrated on the Lautrec paintings and drawings, but the museum does include other collections, both permanent and transient. The Lautrec collection is extensive and compressive, giving a clear... 更多
This is a sizeable museum with a good range of works by, and of, Toulouse-Lautrec, housed in a beautiful building beside the river. Well worth the admission, a good place to spend a couple of hours.
The museum was a highlight of our brief visit to Albi. It’s really three museums: (1) a retrospective of the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (d.1901), who was born in Albi; (2) an exhibition from the general collection; and (3) a presentation of the building itself, which began to be constructed in the thirteenth century. The biggest draw is probably... 更多
Who knew that T-L would be so interesting. We got there at 10:30 am, they closed at noon for lunch, when we were only half way through, so we went back in the afternoon to see the rest.
If you are a true fan of T-L, this is the place for you, over 60% of his works are contained within the magnificent building located next to the Albi Cathederal. Truly a wonderful experience made better with the use of the audio guides. The gift shop is great and the staff friendly. Highly recommend to the art appreciators out... 更多
This exposition in a wonderful envirement gives a good impression of the days and live of this special member of the french impressionists.It shows the drive and development of a fantastic artist and beautiful work from every stage in his life.
I have to confess at the beginning I went there to please my wife. But the reality is that many performances from Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec are there. The exhibition is done so we follow the evolution of the style and compare with artists from the same period. really interesting
A great museum showing a great deal of the painters work. Explanation is given at every room through out the museum. relaxed atmosphere with attentive staff who are willing to discuss the works of art.
