'At the Circus. Entering the Ring, detail' from 1899 by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the brilliant printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator of such wonderful artwork that rose from the post-impressionist world of Paris in the 1800's. Closely linked to the Moulin Rouge many of Henri's paintings depict scenes from life of turn-of-the-century Paris and the glitzy underworld that was shaping the rest of the world with its fashion, style and the very latest in modern art and printing techniques.
A huge and wonderful collection of his work is available from World of Art faithfully reproduced for your pleasure
