Label Copy

This lively sheet served as a catalog cover for the fine art posters offered by the dealer A. Arnould. The work’s title leaves little doubt as to what we are witnessing: a prostitute plying her trade in the company of an enthusiastic client. The red divan and flocked wall establish the setting—a brothel—and the tipped champagne glass the means of “seduction.” Though the fiery haired woman in the negligée is an anonymous conquest, the client in this print is a portrait: a comic likeness of Lautrec’s stone-faced friend Maxime Dethomas. The inclusion of the famously proper Dethomas in this lustful vignette can thus be read as an ironic inside joke. The red, blue and orange cross-hairs at the center margins of the sheet are registration marks used by the printer to ensure that the three colored stones were properly aligned.
