Toulouse-Lautrec in Paris
The work, nothing but the work. That should be enough. But with Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, how can one leave the man aside? How can you not combine his life and his very existence, with his work as an artist? The two are inseparably intertwined. To dwell on his paintings, drawings and lithographs, which are essential, and ignore his unique, colorful character would be a mistake, even if we know everything or almost everything about the painter¹s daily life and debauchery. Toulouse-Lautrec describes the life and work of an endearing man who is, perhaps, different from what has been passed on to us as legend.
