About The Artist: Henri de Toulouse Lautrec was slight in stature, incredibly off-beat, and prodigiously talented in the production of lithographs, paintings, posters and other artworks. Within less than 40 years (b. 1864- d. 1901), Lautrec created an unforgettable body of work that continues to inspire, to confound, and to captivate collectors the world over. His immersion in the colorful and theatrical life of the fin de siecle Paris yielded an oeuvre of exciting, elegant, and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec is known as one the greatest artists of the post-impressionist period. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, a new record was set when "La Blanchisseuse," an early painting of a young laundress, sold for USD 22.4 million.
