Historical Context:
Throughout his career, which spanned less than 20 years, Toulouse-Lautrec created 737 canvases, 275 watercolors, 363 prints and posters, 5,084 drawings, some ceramic and stained glass work, and a number of works which have been lost. Toulouse-Lautrec excelled at capturing people in their working environment, where color and the movement of the gaudy night-life are present, but the glamor stripped away. Toulouse-Lautrec's skilled depiction of people was a product of his painterly style which is highly linear and gives great emphasis to contour. Many of his works may best be described as drawings in colored paint.
