Henri Toulouse-Lautrec is well known today as a legendary bohemian artist from the 18th century who was born in 1864 in the south of France. His family was part of the aristocratic society. Lautrec suffered a genetic condition that stopped his bones from healing properly. By the age 14 he had broken both legs which then ceased to grow normally despite the rest of his body which left him a mere 4 foot high. Due to this unfortunate condition, it forced Lautrec to focus on sketching and painting. As a teen he was a student of the artist Fernand Cormon and perfected his arts on a hill above Paris, Montmatre. Laurec soon gave himself up to the true bohemian lifestyle of drinking, cabarets, brothels and endless art. Henri Toulouse Lautrec died in September 1901.
What Our Customers Say:
My prints are fantastic. Even the texture is impressive making it more like the genuine article!
I bought 3 prints. I found one hard to come by previously and I was relieved when I got onto this site and discovered I could get it- as well as others representative of the genre. I was surprised with the range and impressed with the price so I bought more than what I was intending to but an investment in great prints nevertheless. I was even surprised by the quality of the paper! Looking forward to Facebooking the end result when framed.
+ Easy, economic one stop shopping for a variety of print styles. Impressive turn around time - even at Christmas.
