The Circus Theme in Art - Toulouse Lautrec
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec showed signs of having mental disorders in 1899 possibly due to alcoholism. Sent to a nursing home in Neuilly, he made drawings of entertainers of the circus, instead of the bars and brothels. I’ll discuss his famous posters as well as his fascinating circus drawings.

The Kiss in Art – What’s in a Name ?
'The Kiss' has been a popular subject in art since the Romanticism of the late 1800s. It may just be a sign of affection in art or 'the kiss' may take on a different meaning and title. I’ll discuss the controversy surrounding this social gesture.
