The Athens show also includes five original posters by Toulouse-Lautrec and one by Pierre Bonnard from the Greek National Gallery's collection, 16 posters produced by Greek artists on the same theme, as well as portraits of Toulouse-Lautrec by students at the Vakalo Art & Design College. Opening hours are Thursdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Admission costs 7 euros.
