Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. The Milliner, Renée Vert (La Modiste, Renée Vert). 1893

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec The Milliner, Renée Vert (La Modiste, Renée Vert) 1893

  • Not on view

Hats are a distinguishing characteristic of Lautrec’s portraits, often drawn with more attention to detail than his subjects’ faces, and several milliners appear repeatedly in his work. In this print, Renée Vert is shown arranging her wares, with a large hatbox at her feet labeled with Lautrec’s remarque (a personalized design commonly added to prints as a form of signature, in this case Lautrec’s monogram).

How we identified these works

In 2018–19, MoMA collaborated with Google Arts & Culture Lab on a project using machine learning to identify artworks in installation photos. That project has concluded, and works are now being identified by MoMA staff.
