T+L Reports: Oh-La-La Lautrec

When Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec discovered fin de siècle Montmartre—a gaslit world of prostitutes, can-can dancers, and cabaret singers whose songs were on everyone's lips and whose images were plastered across Paris—he thought he'd arrived in heaven. "Toulouse-Lautrec and Montmartre," on view at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. (202/737-4215; www.nga.gov; through June 12), illuminates that volatile mixture of low life and high creativity with more than 250 paintings, prints, sculptures, and ephemera by the artist, his predecessors, and his contemporaries (including Degas and a young Picasso), who found inspiration lurking in the shadows of the Moulin Rouge.
