Art Expectations Posters of Paris

You should go see this exhibit! It ends tomorrow, January 20, at the Dallas Museum of Art. Go if you live nearby and can get there! I went this morning (a little crowded) but so worth it. Amazing! A whole room full of Toulouse-Lautrec original posters! (Ok, so they are lithographic prints, but still original prints!) The exhibit also includes many other poster artists from the late 1800s, such as Jules Chéret and Alphonse Mucha. Beautiful work!

I was very influenced by these posters and artists about 20 years ago (still am actually). I created a few paintings in a style similar to theirs. I tried anyway! Here they are (they now hang, framed, in my bedroom):
