Synopsis by Matthew Tobey
From Kultur's Great Artists comes the Post-Impressionists video series. Highlighting six of the most famous and influential figures of the post-impressionist movement, the programs attempt to give viewers a detailed look at the work and lives of these creative luminaries. Post-Impressionists: Toulouse-Lautrec details the illustrations and paintings created by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in late 19th century Paris. Toulouse-Lautrec is probably best know for capturing the nightlife of Montmartre, as displayed in such pieces as La Goulue at the Moulin Rouge. Released in 2001, the program runs 50 minutes. The other videos in the set are Post-Impressionists: Gauguin, Post-Impressionists: Cézanne, Post-Impressionists: Van Gogh, Post-Impressionists: Munch, and Post-Impressionists: Rousseau.
