Toulouse-Lautrec and Montmartre

at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C. March 20 - June 12, 2005.

While personally I'm not that wild about Toulouse-Lautrec there was plenty of other great stuff at the exhibition, I loved the posters of Chéret and Steinlen for example.
Dance Hall Days - French posters from Chéret to Toulouse–Lautrec

Poster "Musée Grévin" by Jules Chéret

Tournée du Chat Noir by Théophile Alexandre Steinlen

Van Gogh spent time in Montmartre as well.
