Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Quotes

Did you know about Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec?

Lautrec was mocked for his short stature and physical appearance which led him to drown his sorrows in alcohol. In 1893 Lautrec's alcoholism began to take its toll and as those around him realized the seriousness of his condition there were rumours of a syphilis infection. He had parties at his house on Friday nights and forced his guests to try them.

Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa or simply Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (French pronunciation: ​[ɑ̃ʁi də tuluz loˈtʁɛk]); (24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901) was a French painter printmaker draughtsman and illustrator whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 1800s yielded a collection of exciting elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec along with Cézanne Van Gogh and Gauguin are among the most well-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period.
