Period Paper is thrilled to offer a collection of colorful tipped-in prints and rotogravures that focuses on the work of Post-Impressionist and Art Nouveau artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. A man of short stature and unusually bad health, coupled with severe alcoholism, he found it difficult to lead the life of a healthy male, preferring to devote a lot of the time to art. He did enjoy the Parisian cabarets however, finding in them the inspiration for a lot of his work. Each of his pieces is a fascinating study in Parisian life at the turn of the century, and a revealing example of how he saw the world around him.
This piece was illustrated by Toulouse-Lautrec, Henri de.
Toulouse-Lautrec, Henri de
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (Nov. 24, 1864 Ð Sep. 9, 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator. He was one of the greatest artists in Post-Impressionism and drew inspiration from the colorful and theatrical life in Paris. He suffered from a series of health problems and couldnÕt partake in a lot of normal adult activities so he immersed himself in his art. His career only lasted twenty years but in that time he created over 6,500 pieces of work. He excelled at capturing people in their working environment and crowded scenes in a sympathetic and dispassionate manner.
