Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901), The Jockey
 (голосов: 0)
Тhis lithograph was originally intended to be part of a set for a portfolio on a racing theme. Toulouse-Lautrec was suffering acute alcoholic collapse at the time, and this was the only print of the set that was completed. Three further works from the proposed series survive, but only one of these approaches a finished state. The Jockey was issued in two editions, first as a monochrome lithograph, and secondly in a colour version.

Although the print is titled The Jockey, its focus is the power and pace of the racehorses, with their riders only depicted from behind, with a total lack of expressive detail. Toulouse-Lautrec’s facility as a draughtsman is clear, as is his ability to distort and exaggerate in order to create atmosphere and character, shown here by the excessive foreshortening of the horses’ necks.
