Au Hanneton, 1898 Lithograph: edition of 100 357 x 254 mm.; 14 x 10 inches Signed, numbered and with red monogram References: Delteil 272 Wittrock 296 Adriani 303 Notes: According to Adriani (Götz Adriani, Toulouse-Lautrec: Das Gesante Graphische Werk, 1987: no. 303, page 368), this rare Toulouse-Lautrec lithograph depicts Madame Armande Brazier. She is shown here in the Parisian (lesbian frequented) Brasserie Hanneton, which was located in the Quartier Pigalle. Toulouse-Lautrec’s friend Calmèse had a dog, which is depicted here, next to Madame Brazier; the dog was often seen at the Brasserie Hanneton. In studying Toulouse-Lautrec’s lithographs, it is clear that for him, lithography was “the final medium”. In relating his lithographs to his works in other media, in case after case, Toulouse-Lautrec’s drawings, watercolors and even paintings, to one extent or another, were preliminary studies for his lithographs.
