toulouse-lautrec at the high...

toulouse-lautrec


yesterday was a particularly gloomy day so i spent the latter half of the afternoon moseying up and down the toulouse-lautrec exhibit at the high museum. i haven't been to a museum in an age and it was time to recharge my soul. i've always been particularly fond of toulouse-lautrec. he inspired many collections when i was studying at SCAD. i adored his fascination with the dredges of society and all the parisian smutty debauchery during the fin-de-siecle. it was truly delightful to see his impressive posters in person. i was equally stunned by his sensitivity to color. he has this amazing ability to ever-so-slightly temper primary colors into a beautiful palette.

it was a beautiful afternoon, wandering through the rooms hearing only slight whispers and watching rain drops crowd the museum's windows. and i very, very nerdily took notes and sketches on my ipad. terribly uncool but it was so easy and effortless. anyway, if you live in atlanta i HIGHly reccomend going to see the exhibit.

Oh I want so badly to see this exhibit! I live four blocks away, so I have no excuse NOT to see it.

*LOVE* Toulouse-Lautrec! May have to make a little day trip this weekend :) Also, have you seen the new Google thing where you can actually tour museums like on Google Earth?

I love this! Too bad I'm no where close!

I haven't been to an art museum in ages. I really need to go to one soon. I always love the experience.
