A major work by Toulouse-Lautrec never seen before on the art market
Artcurial is proud to present a rare masterpiece by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec at the Impressionist & Modern Art auction on 29 June. Entitled Une opération par le Docteur Péan à l’Hôpital International, this work was realised in 1891 and has remained in the hands of the same family ever since, which is none other than that of Toulouse-Lautrec's doctor, to whom the artist gave it that year. This same doctor, Frédéric Baumgarten, is depicted in the front of the composition. Exhibited only once in 1914, this artpiece is an important rediscovery, as unique in its exclusivity on the market as in its subject.
