Lautrec Oil Paintings
Toulouse-Lautrec was born on 24 July 1864, death on 9 February 1901, French artist who observed and documented with great psychological insight the personalities and facets of Parisian nightlife and the French world of entertainment in the 1890s. Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period, with Paul Cezanne, Van Gogh, and Paul Gauguin. His use of free-flowing, expressive line, often becoming pure arabesque, resulted in highly rhythmical compositions. The extreme simplification in outline and movement and the use of large colour areas make his posters some of his most powerful works.
