Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was a late 19th-century French painter, printmaker, draftsman, ceramist and illustrator whose artistic themes primarily derived from his involvement in the famed Montmartre district of Paris, a central hub for the Bohemian styles of art, philosophy, literature and theatre of the time. He is considered, along with artists such as Cézanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin; to be one of the greatest painters of the Post-Impressionist period.
