Lot description
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was a French painter and illustrator during the Neo-Impressionist and Art Nouveau movements in Paris. He is best known for his bold, clean and sometimes provocative iconic images of modern life in Paris cafés, brothels, bars, and theaters. His most famous works are from the promotional posters he created for numerous businesses and French Theater productions, including the famous Moulin Rouge cabaret dancers. Toulouse-Lautrec attended the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, eventually settling in the bohemian area of Paris known as Montmartre, from which he gained much of his artistic inspiration. He was also inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, the influence of which can be seen through his block coloring and linear contours, as well as in the clean and simple impressionist styles of Manet and Degas. After Toulouse-Lautrec's death, his mother contributed funds to create the Toulouse-Lautrec Museum at his birthplace in Albi, which now houses the largest collection of his works.
