Culture Fix - Toulouse-Lautrec


The celebrated French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was the creator of some of the most popular paintings in the history of modern art. An aristocrat by birth, he spent much of his career recording the life of the Parisian demi-monde - particularly the bars, dance-halls and brothels that appeared in the city's Montmartre district at the end of the 19th century. Although Toulouse-Lautrec was hugely successful both as a painter and print-maker, his was a tragic life, scarred by family conflict, alcoholism and illness. This profile explores the life and work of this important, intriguing and influential artist.
