Magnet Lautrec Rousse also called Toilet
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901)
Rousse also called Toilet, 1889 - Oil on cardboard; H. 67; W. 54 cm
Toulouse-Lautrec has left countless pictures of women in private moments, often at their toilet. Here the woman fills the centre of the composition and is shown close up, offering the spectator a view of a sculptural back. The wicker chairs around her suggest that the scene took place in the artist's studio, rue Caulaincourt.
