The artist

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901)

Born on November 24, 1864 in Albi, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec began painting in his youth and innovated in lithographic drawing. He became very famous for his posters, influenced by Japanese and impressionist styles and for having impregnated with humanity the marginalized populations in his art, including sex workers, as seen in his printed series Elles de 1896. He died on September 9, 1901, at the age of 36, as a result of heavy alcohol consumption and various diseases.
