Summary

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - French painter, printmaker, and illustrator of the Post-Impressionist period. He is best known for his depictions of Parisian nightlife, including the world of cabarets, cafes, and brothels. He was an observer of the social and cultural life of Paris in the late 19th century, and his work provides a glimpse into the world of the working class, the bohemian, and the upper-class society of the time. He was a master of the art of capturing movement and conveying a sense of energy in his work. Despite a relatively short career and a physical disability, Toulouse-Lautrec's work is considered highly influential.
