DESCRIPTION:  Lautrec designed this poster, at Aristide Bruant’s request, for his appearances at the concert café Eldorado on the Boulevard de Strasbourg. Lautrec used new stones for the drawing, with the same dimensions and the same color arrangement as in the Ambassadeurs poster, but the image is reversed. The management of the Eldorado disliked the design as seen in a letter by Lautrec, which may refer to the poster: ‘ Bruant, my good friend. Enclosed the states as requested. As far as the poster ex edition is concerned, there are no good impressions left. The Eldorado management was very mean, haggling over the price and giving me less than than the printing costs at Chaix. So I have misused our good relations to exploit me. It remains to be hoped we will be more careful next time. Bruant liked Lautrec’s poster Ambassadeurs, feeling it captured his image and character, and as it was so well received publically, he insisted it be used again for his performance at the Eldorado despite the management’s objections. Bruant was certainly aware of self-promotion and how duplicating his image would enhance his reputation and popularity.

An excellent impression in very good condition. The colors strong and vibrant. The paper in good condition, save for minor flaws.
