Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa (24 November 1864 – 9 September
1901), also known as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was a French painter, printmaker,
draughtsman and illustrator whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of
Paris in the late 19th century allowed him to produce a collection of enticing, elegant
and provocative images of the modern, sometimes decadent, life of those times.
Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period,
with Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin. In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, La
Blanchisseuse, his early painting of a young laundress, sold for US$22.4 million and set
a new record for the artist for a price at auction.
