Henri de Toulouse Lautrec (1864-1901) "Les Ambassadeurs : Aristide Bruant" (1892)
The image shows an arrogant Bruant with a bright orange scarf and his trademark hat.
Aristide Bruant was a successful singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur who ran a cabaret in the Montmartre quartier of Paris. When he began performing at up-scale café-concerts on the Champs-Élysées, he immediately commissioned Toulouse-Lautrec to market his rough street persona in a manner that would appeal to a bourgeois audience. Seizing on Bruant's trademark costume of a wide-brimmed hat, cape, and red scarf, Lautrec designed a sparse yet iconic image that promoted both the performer's career as well as his own.
This lithograph was made circa 1950, edition Stedeliik Museum, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
