The Paris of Toulouse: Prints, Posters and Lithography on Display at the Oceanfront Resort
DANA POINT, Calif. – March 11, 2015 – The Ritz-Carlton, Laguna Niguel Club Level has established itself by providing exceptional customer service personalized for each guest and now guests staying on The Club Level have the exclusive opportunity to experience an exhibit featuring the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The exhibit, on loan from Galerie Moderne, will be on display in The Club Lounge April 2 through September 30, 2015.
Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period, a group which includes Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. His works are portrayals of aristocratic society – Parisian high life. An illustrator, he became famous for his depictions of Moulin Rouge, Operas and Cabarets, and his works appeared in the famous magazine, “The Chap Book.” Throughout his career, which spanned less than 20 years, he created 737 canvases, 275 water colors, 363 prints and posters, 5,084 drawings, and some ceramic and stained glass work. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, a new record was set when La blanchisseuse, an early painting of a young laundress, sold for $22.4 million
Guests can enjoy the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibit and extend their stay with the Treat You package. Starting at $875 per night, the Treat You package includes accommodations on The Club Level and one complimentary night when guests stay four nights.
