A special exhibition taking place at the Gifu Prefectural Museum of Art looks at the works of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901), a French painter, printmaker, and illustrator.

Along with the extensive array of Lautrec pieces at the event, there will be other works on display from the likes of Claude Monet, Gustave Moreau, and Edgar Degas.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1000 yen.
