Annotation Painter of Parisian life at the end of the 19th century, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was an artist whose oeuvre stands apart from those of his contemporaries. Oscillating between Post-Impressionism and Expressionism, he loved to paint dancers and singers at work in the cabarets of the capital. His touch is vigorous, his colours pure. Despite his personal handicap, his numerous works and posters are full of turbulent, incessant movement and figures such as the famous Goulue or Valentin le Désossé. Without doubt too entangled in this Parisian bohemia, he died of syphilis and chronic alcoholism at the age of only thirty-seven, leaving behind a substantial body of work.
