We finally got an opportunity to make it to the latest MoMA exhibits over the holiday (Happy New Year, by the by!) and we’re super excited to see the Poster exhibit featuring the works of Henri de Toulousse-Lautrec. Visited the exhibit with another brilliant graphic designer, Daniel Irizarry, who had some great call outs on late 1800’s typography as well as using splatter techniques to create value (seriously, most of these techniques get lost until you really get to see his posters and illustrations in person). As per usual, I found the small details and graphite sketches to be the most interesting aspects of the show – to see a bit of depth into the process in addition to the final product. Beautiful show for all those interested in Belle Époque Paris.
On another note, the key show at MoMA currently features Matisse’s cut paper work – and a ton of it. Also certainly worth a visit (extended until February!). Unfortunately, was unable to shoot photos to share here (the security guards are quite serious), but that just gives you more reason to visit! do it.
