The evening comprises of a talk from Nick, (which includes the opportunity to interject and question) a drink (or two) and certainly last night a delicious pie.
Probably many of us are familiar with his dramatic 'flat' posters for the cabarets but there was also a lot of 'real' paintings and drawings that Henri completed in his short life (he was only 37 when the combination of alcohol and syphilis brought his life to an early end).
The chance to see and have described works by Lautrec and others who had clearly influenced him (like Van Gogh and Katsushika Hokusai ) was a real pleasure - certainly seeing an image of the sympathetic portrait of Van Gogh that Lautrec made was a surprise to me .
In fact I went along to the session with John Kaye who happened to bring along a journal he had that included an article on Lautrec - the book was 70 years old!
[Interesting that the way Nick described Lautrec's physical condition was that it came about as result of accident and the practice of family inbreeding designed to keep the wealth of the nobility amongst an elite coterie.]
|Now a respectable £16.04|
And back on the year longs.I suppose I'm creating the rules as I proceed - minimum increase in a day £1.01 maximum £4.99 (unless a sudden windfall appears) - now going well.
The doors I can record at anytime but no duplication - and preferably I will be in a position where I have a choice of at least two doors - (but am already finding this part a challenge).
