In this video from the Children’s Video Tour, explore Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec’s painting depicting the musical play “Chilpéric,” starring the famous actress Marcelle Lender. Toulouse-Lautrec loved going to the theater and often worked on theatrical productions by designing costumes, sets, and advertising posters. He lived near the Theatre des Variétés in Paris, where this performance took place. He was fascinated by the play’s star, and attended the production 20 times, making quick sketches in his notebook to capture the faces and movements of the performers. On view in the West Building, Main Floor, Gallery 80. http://www.nga.gov/fcgi-bin/tinfo_f?object=72012 ----- Find the Children's Video Tour at http://www.nga.gov/education/timetravel/index.shtm
