Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, “La Clownesse au Moulin Rouge” (1897) from the Stein Collection.
High Museum of Art

Atlanta's High Museum of Art will receive 47 works of art, dating from fin-de-siécle Paris, including prized examples by Toulouse-Lautrec, Gauguin and Degas.

One highlight of the gift, which is strong in French drawings and prints, is Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec's “La Clownesse au Moulin Rouge” (1897), one of only a handful of impressions of this color lithograph.

The gift is from prominent Atlanta collectors Irene and Howard Stein. The Steins released a statement that says they collected many works by Toulouse-Lautrec "...because we appreciated the medium and enjoyed the stories behind the images."

The collection also includes works on paper by Pierre Bonnard, Edgar Degas, Paul Gauguin, Honoré Daumier and Paul Signac, and sculptures by Pieter Xavery, Martin Desjardins, Charles Cordier and Jules Dalou.

A special exhibition, titled “Toulouse-Lautrec and Friends: The Stein Collection,” will open in January 2011.
