About the cover:

Considered one of the focal holdings of the gallery’s collection, Le Jockey is an exemplary sample of the virtuosity of the printmaking art form. Born an aristocrat, Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec gravitated to art early in his life. Known for his signature use of the printmaking format, Lautrec created posters and paintings based on the belle époque era, the final decade of the nineteenth century. He lived in Montmartre—considered the artistic, bohemian and cabaret epicenter of Paris—and focused his artistic production on its boisterous activities. In this lithograph, Lautrec gives a splendid example of his finesse, capturing the fin de siècle attitude of the Parisian leisure lifestyle. Lautrec is recognized as the creator of the modern poster due to his facile ability to create fine art utilizing popular modern imagery and bold blocks of color.
