Edvard Munch “Madonna” (1893) & Henri Toulouse-Lautrec “Portrait of woman in profile” (1890). These two extraordinary yet fundamentally different #paintings were created only a few years apart, reflecting how rapid was the development of #artistic#expression at the end of the 19th century. The delicacy and sensual tension of #EdvardMunch ’s work pushed all boundries for depicting the female form, and makes #ToulouseLautrec seem almost conservative. Yet #Munch ’s rebellious depiction of #woman hinges on Toulouse-Lautrec’s trendsetting female portraits of the #belleepoque#expressionism#norway#madonna#art

#marchmeetthemaker DAY 18 *Inspiration* From studying art and artist many yonks ago, Toulouse Lautrec and Picasso we’re always my favourite (especially Picasso’s experimental collages and Lautrec’s lovely figurative style). As my illustration style has developed over the years collage has become a main feature of it and I love the added layer it brings. As I mainly focus on card designs at the moment my favourite subjects for these usually revolve around my nostalgia and capturing memories from my youth (mainly cheesy TV characters) and bringing them to life in the form of collage.
For Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, painting was, first of all, a way of living. Thus, he brought to his art a zest for life as well as an impeccable style. It is an exciting discovery to find that Lautrec applied this same exuberance and meticulous technique to the art of cuisine that he invents recipes and cooked new dishes as an artistic creation worthy of his serious attention. This volume is a collection of the recipes which Lautrec invented, or which we garnered in his company from “clever cooks and conscientious mothers” of 11 classes of society. It has been illustrated with the menus that Lautrec himself designed and decorated, as well as with a rich abundance of other appropriate Lautrec paintings and drawings. The frontispiece is a portrait by Edouard Vuillard of Lautrec preparing one of his masterful dishes. The recipes are given here in their original form, retaining their color of thought and language. The only modifications are the notes that have been added to facilitate the work of modern food lovers. $40
