Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 - 1901)

 

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was a French painter, printmaker, draftsman and illustrator, whose immersion into the decadent nightlife culture and theatrical life of Paris lent his art a gritty realism. His paintings of dance hall performers and cabaret singers are personal, revealing both the sadness and humor hidden in the dim gaslight. Lithography is an ancient printing process, but it was Toulouse-Lautrec, through his color lithography, who elevated it to a true art form.
