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.
