Buy Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec Art

Born in Albi, France on November 24, 1864, Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec was the son and heir of Comte Alphonse-Charles de Toulouse, an aristocratic family dating back one thousand years. Always a sickly child, Toulouse-Lautrec began drawing at age ten; then broke one leg at age twelve and the other at age fourteen, which stunted the growth of his legs while his body developed normally. To compensate while coping with his injuries, he concentrated on his art and received painting and drawing lessons.

At age 18, Toulouse-Lautrec moved to Paris to the Montmartre region, known for its bohemian lifestyle, which the young artist fully embraced. He frequently could be seen drawing and sketching while drinking and enjoying the camaraderie of his friends then the following day, he would transform his sketches into paintings.

Toulouse-Lautrec was heavily influenced by Japanese woodblock prints known as Ukiyo-e, as well as the work of fellow Impressionist artists of his time. He created more than 350 lithographs and nine drypoint prints during this time. He died at the early age of 36.
