Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s Moulin Rouge: La Goulue poster continues to be one of his most-recognized designs. The Moulin Rouge dance hall opened in October of 1889, but by 1891, attendance had fallen due to increased competition. In 1891, Toulouse-Lautrec was commissioned to produce posters for the newly opened cabaret. His first, La Goulue at the Moulin Rouge (1891-92), depicting the dancer Louise Weber, secured rapid international fame for the venue. The upcoming Antiques, Clocks & Estate Auction, presented by Fontaine’s Auction Gallery, will feature a lithograph of Toulouse-Lautrec’s poster.
A ten-piece mahogany dining set by R.J. Horner is also among the leading lots. The furniture manufacturer marketed both to the elite and those in the middle class. R.J. Horner used mahogany and oak hardwoods to produce high style pieces, many of which remain popular today. Also featured in this event is a portrait by Ellen Emmet Rand. Best known for her portraits of world leaders such as Franklin Roosevelt, Rand’s works focus on bringing her subjects to life. Beyond fine art and furniture, this auction will include a selection of clocks, music boxes, jewelry, and more. Browse the full catalog and register to bid on the Fontaine’s Auction Gallery website.
