Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa came from one of France's oldest aristocratic families. Only one-and-a-half metres (about four-and-a-half feet) tall, he cut a remarkable figure. Toulouse-Lautrec's health was delicate.
He found consolation in the theatres and brothels of Paris, with dancers and prostitutes. His art is inextricably linked to his eccentric, bohemian lifestyle.
