Label Copy

The combined technique of crayon, brush, and lithographic spatter in this six-color print is particularly close to the effect of a painted sketch. It was, however, the “unfinished” character of this three-figure composition that apparently cost Lautrec the commission: a poster publicizing W. Milligan Sloane’s History of Napoleon I, then being serialized in New York’s Century Magazine. Lautrec had participated at the behest of his dealers—the organizers of the competition—and it is doubtful whether he ever truly considered himself a contender, given the conservative make-up of the jury. Nevertheless, his design was awarded fourth place, and 100 impressions were pulled by Lautrec’s publishers, possibly at the artist’s expense.
