Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec spent his childhood between the Château du Bosc and Albi, and his brief existence came to an end at the Château Malromé, near Bordeaux. A true Parisian, his legendary form was a common sight on the Grands Boulevards and the Champs-Élysées, at the Halles and the Bois de Boulogne.
But it was in Montmartre that Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the most well-loved of the 19th-century French painters, sought refuge.
This book revisits his intoxicating nights, with the painter himself as its remarkable guide.
From the Moulin Rouge to the Folies Bergère, from the Moulin de la Galette to the brothels and circuses, a world that threw itself into merriment, deaf to the rumours of war and the threats of the century to come.
A new perspective on Toulouse-Lautrec, the Belle Époque and the glory days of Montmartre, enriched by a wealth of images and never-before-seen photographs.
