Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was a French painter and illustrator during the post-impressionist and art-nouveau movements in Paris. He is best known for his bold, clean yet sometimes provocative iconic images of modern life in Paris’ cafés, brothels, bars and theaters. His most famous works are 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 much of his artistic inspiration came. He was also inspired by Japanese woodblock prints, clearly seen in his block coloring and linear contours, as well as 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, showcasing the largest collection of his works.
