In 1948 a selection of twelve engraved works by Toulouse-Lautrec was published in Paris. The themes portrayed drew on the painter’s favourite ones during the last decade of the 19thcentury: the cabarets, with their singers, dancers and actresses; the brothels; the horse races; Napoleon. Among the works chosen is also the one presented here: “Amazon and Barrel”.

This lithograph, a work being a real tribute to Edgar Degas, was printed in 1898. It is the only lithograph of the series distinguished by its absolutely spontaneous aspect, clearly inspired by a pencil drawing made in front of the subject.
