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.

I have bought several works that were reproduced by overstockArt and was happy with all of them. The Klimts were amazing in detail and texture. They all came with the proper hanging screws, as I got them all pre-framed. For quality at a reasonable price overstockArt is the way to go!
I don't normally buy prints but took a chance on this and I absolutely LOVE it! It's hanging in an area filled with oil paintings and it still stands out as a star!
