It will feel like summer in Paris when Arlington Museum of Art blooms with the "Toulouse-Lautrec and the Post Impressionists," an exhibit featuring nearly 200 prints, drawings and posters from avant-garde Post-Impressionist artists.

The exhibit runs May 16-August 16, 2015. Visit the Arlington Museum of Art website for hours, tickets prices, and other helpful information.

Built around the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, painter of scenes and artists from the famed Paris theatre the Moulin Rouge, this expansive exhibit will explore the anti-establishment movement among artists seeking alternative means to bring their art to a broad public and break out of the traditional molds.

"We believe this one-of-a-kind Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition will be both popular, bringing in wide audience, and educational, fulfilling our mission," said Chris Hightower, the museum's executive director.

This exhibition was made possible by a $100,000 grant from Arlington Tomorrow Foundation, the event's lead sponsor.
