ARTISTS WE LOVE: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

WHO: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

WHAT: Painter

WHERE: France

WHEN: 24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901

This legendary Post-Impressionist painter who would have been 155 today is hands down one of our favorites. His collection is a whirlwind of color and scenes from the wild side of late 19th century Paris and the famous Moulin Rouge. An aristocrat by blood, Toulouse-Lautrec’s life was less than idyllic having been born with genetic disorder that ultimately led to the stunt of his growth (he was only 4 feet 8 inches) and the development of a terrible drinking problem by the time he reached his 30s. Nevertheless, he rose to recognition and ran with the likes of Van Gogh and Oscar Wilde. In his lifetime he created over 700 paintings and 5,000 drawings and you can stream some of his most well-known in our “Toulouse-Lautrec” gallery now.

The painting featured at the top of this post is “At the Moulin Rouge”, painted by Toulouse-Lautrec in 1895.
