Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (24 November 1864 – 9 September 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman and illustrator. Toulouse-Lautrec – along with Cézanne, Van Gogh and Gauguin – is among the most well-known painters 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 US$22.4 million.
Born in 1864, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is one of the most respected French painters of the post-impressionist period. He illustrated the colorful and whimsical life of Paris, often compared to his contemporaries, Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin. He was prolific, despite his devotion to cocktails. His compelling and romantic scenes of the theatrical life make him famous.
