Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | Post-Impressionist painter | Part.³


Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901)⏭ is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period, with Cézanne⏭, Van Gogh⏭ and Gauguin⏭.
He excelled at depicting people in their working environments, with the colour and movement of the gaudy nightlife present but the glamour stripped away.
He was a master at painting crowd scenes where each figure was highly individualized.
At the time they were painted, the individual figures in his larger paintings could be identified by silhouette alone, and the names of many of these characters have been recorded.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | Post-Impressionist painter


Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, in full Henri-Marie-Raymonde de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa   (born Nov. 24, 1864, Albi, France-died Sept. 9, 1901, Malromé), 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.
His use of free-flowing, expressive line, often becoming pure arabesque, resulted in highly rhythmical compositions (e.g., In the Circus Fernando: The Ringmaster, 1888). The extreme simplification in outline and movement and the use of large colour areas make his posters some of his most powerful works.
