Label Copy

Oscar’s Wilde’s Salomé, first published in French and initially banned in London, premiered in Paris at the Théâtre de l’Oeuvre. Wilde’s work here shares a program with Raphaël, a psychological drama by Lautrec’s friend Romain Coolus. The two authors are illustrated on either side of the composition. The Parisian Coolus is presented in profile, in front of a faintly sketched Arc de Triomphe. The infamous Oscar Wilde, who had met Lautrec but declined to sit for a portrait, is reduced to a broad caricature with puckered lips and parted hair. He stands imperiously on the banks of the Thames, posed in front of Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament.
