Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

French Painter, Printmaker and Ilustrator

Bohemian Revoultionist

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was born, raised and died in Paris, all of which time was a major influence in the Bohemian Revolution. He often painted women that he met at the infamous night club Moulin Rouge and was also portrayed in the movies made about the club, but did not focus on his painting career, but more on his life long alcoholism, that eventually led to his death when he was 37 years old. While in Paris, he met Vincent Van Gogh, Cezanne, and Gaugin, and artists like them. Paris was most often the subject of his paintings, portraying the free and bohemian life style of the people there. Due to the disability that caused his legs to stop growing at a young age, resulting him in being only 4'6 tall, he had a hard time getting his foot in the door in the beginning of his career, but then went on to be one of the most infamous Paris painters of all time
