Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 – 1901) was a French artist whose immersion in the colorful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 1800s yielded a collection of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of the times. He is among the most well-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period. Toulouse-Lautrec's skilled depiction of people relied a highly linear style which gave great emphasis to contour.
Nothing quite evokes the gay and sometimes even ribald spirit of late 19th-century paintings like those of Toulouse-Lautrec. Born in 1864 in France’s mid-Pyrenees region to a family of aristocrats, Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa early exhibited a number of genetic deformities, probably due to excessive inbreeding, but also displayed a remarkable talent as an artist, which his family recognized and cultivated. Initially moving to Paris to study art, Toulouse-Lautrec fell in love with the city and became particularly fascinated with Montmartre, the City of Lights’ bohemian district noted for its theaters, dance halls, prostitutes and colorful, wide-open lifestyle. He captured many of the denizens of this exciting if decadent lifestyle in many of the paintings, prints and illustrations that he produced in his short but prolific career as an artist. Classified today as a Post-Impressionist, Toulouse-Lautrec ranks among the best-known artists of that era. His oil paintings are notable for their long, thin brush strokes, their realism and the love of life and action that they evoked. A chronic alcoholic, Toulouse-Lautrec died at the age of 36, but his work lives on in the glorious paintings and prints he left mankind. overstockArt.com offers a beautiful selection of affordable hand-crafted Toulouse-Lautrec oil paintings in many sizes available with free shipping and returns.
Subtle yet very beautiful painting with great attention to detail. A fine reproduction that lightens up the room. The colors are soft and have a soothing effect on the mind. Strongly recommended.
A vibrant colorful hand painted oil on canvas that has changed the mood in the room. The red and orange poppies against the background of a dark sky is mesmerizing and magical. Very good reproduction. Strongly Recommended.
I ordered this in a large size for my living room as I had seen it years ago and always liked the scene and the colors. I didn't know if the painting would be what I remembered but it was better than I expected. The colors are beautiful and the painting so well done. Some thought I had purchased a real Monet, but that isn't in my budget. This one was and I am very happy with my purchase.
Absolutely love this tile! The colours are so vibrant and pop off the tile. Looks great on the wall.
We were so impressed with our first purchase we bought a second painting the next day. Not only was the painting outstanding, the frame was super as well!
I just pulled my new painting out of the box (which arrived incredibly quick) and I am absolutely in love! It is so beautiful, and detailed - so much better than I was expecting. The frame is good quality and it was assembled well - this is definitely a piece I will have the rest of my life. All in all, I am overjoyed with it! I will definitely be a returning customer!
Smooth transaction, excellent price/sale, flawless and quick shipping, and most of all, product just as advertised. By the way, frame is a beautiful match. Would shop again!
