Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec 24th November, 1864 - 9th September, 1901

Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 19th century yielded a collection of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times.

Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period, a group which includes C├ęzanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, a new record was set when La blanchisseuse, an early painting of a young laundress, sold for US$22.4 million.
