    Art Brokerage: Marcel Vertes French/Hungarian Artist: b. 1895-1961. An outstanding twentieth century painter, printmaker and illustrator, Marcel Vertes moved from his native Hungary to Paris during the First World War. Living and working in the famous Latin Quarter, Vertes quickly established himself as one of the most important artists of the Paris scene, thus continuing in the footsteps of Boutet, Forain, Toulouse-Lautrec and others. The art of Marcel Vertes was at its peak during the vibrant and somewhat wild decade of the 1920’s. Concentrating upon scenes of Paris street life, portrayals of women and depictions of circus and cabaret acts, Vertes left a legacy of original lithographs and drawings that superbly capture the spirit of 1920’s Paris. Marcel Vertes was a consultant to the Producers and set Designers of the 1952 Award Winning film Moulin Rouge, about the life and times of artist Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec(1864-1901). In real life, Marcel earned his tuition money for his European education by making forgeries of Lautrec's works. Marcel's hand is actually shown in the movie, Moulin Rouge as the actor drawing for the late Toulouse Lautrec, and his images were accordingly was used in the film and given appropriate credit in the trailer to the film. Marcel studied in Paris and followed many of the footsteps of the great French Impressionists. Vertès is also responsible for the original murals in the Café Carlyle in the Carlyle Hotel in New York City, New York.
