<p>The art of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec and the decadence avec elegance of the Parisian Belle Époque of the late 1800s are the subjects of a special free program of film screenings, which will be accompanying the National Gallery of Australia’s major retrospective of the works of the iconic French artist currently showing in Canberra. All films will be screened at the Gallery’s James O Fairfax Theatre.

John Houston’s 1952 classic Moulin Rouge was the first film to kick off the series of screenings that will include documentaries and contemporary classics celebrating the spirit of Toulouse-Lautrec, Paris and its famous cabarets, theatres and bordellos.
