Developed from Toulouse-Lautrec's Eldorado: Aristide Bruant poster, in 1892, from the Art Institute of Chicago’s collection.

During his cabaret performances, Bruant adopted the role of a social outsider who criticized upper-class society and commented on current events with biting humor.  In 1892, Bruant commissioned Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec to design a poster advertising his shows. The artist created an iconic portrait of the singer that reduced his likeness to its most memorable elements: a wide-brimmed hat, black cloak, and bright-red scarf.
