The celebrated French artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901) created works that epitomize the theatricality, elegance, and decadence of late-19th-century Paris. This beautifully illustrated book features a selection of Toulouse-Lautrec’s drawings, paintings, and posters, and more than 90 prints, some of which have never previously been published. The works cover the entirety of Toulouse-Lautrec’s career, beginning with a drawing completed when he was just 16 years old. The stunning images are accompanied by essays that explore Toulouse-Lautrec’s life in Paris and the people and places represented in his art, as well as the distinguishing characteristics of this particular selection of artworks. In addition, the catalogue includes a chronology of the artist’s life and a full checklist with scientific and technical analysis of the works. Encompassing a range from Toulouse-Lautrec’s most well-known and iconic prints and posters to rarely seen material, this is an essential resource for admirers of his art.
