Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901), leading late 19th century French artist, who developed an unconventional and dynamic style of painting and drawing, influenced by his classical, academic training as well as the Japanese and avant-garde artists of the time. Eventually he established a very personal unique approach to his work, forgoing anatomical precision and the rules of perspective to capture the essential nature of his subjects through expressive lines or just a few brief brushstrokes. He employed exaggeration and caricature to maximum effect, often combined with intense colours.
Toulouse-Lautrec spent much of his professional life in the bohemian quarter of Montmartre, documenting the dancehalls, nightclubs, cabarets, entertainers, and artists of the area. It was thus that he became a chronicler of the exuberant, decadent fin de siècle Paris – a subject matter that went particularly well with his energetic and unique artistic brand of art.
