Label Copy

Renée Vert was the wife of Joseph Albert, a friend of Lautrec’s from his student days in the Atelier Cormon. A modiste (millner), Vert was at the forefront of French fashion, and her designs were delivered to the homes of her well-heeled clients by errand girls like the one in the lithograph nearby. The present print was not, however, commissioned by Vert, but employs her as the elegant centerpiece for the ornate menu of a banquet given by an artists’ group with which Lautrec kept close ties. After the menu was produced, the printer removed Lautrec’s lettering in order to produce a second state for collectors. A single stroke (the final ‘l’ from one of the items on the menu) remains visible, next to the vertical line of the counter and the hat-box bearing the artist’s own initials.
