The Women of Toulouse-Lautrec

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 - 1901), French illustrator and painter, had an immense love for women and found a particular joy in seeing them perform, dance, sing in cabarets. This way, the legendary artist spent his nights living through the craziness of the Moulin Rouge, drugged by bountiful Beauty. He dazed off into a world full of movement, involving different facets, and twirling women. Toulouse-Lautrec, then, made this atmosphere a subject of his paintings.
