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 recently discovered this company and have already purchased several pieces with the intent of buying more in the near future. Having been a manager of a fine art gallery, I know exceptional artwork when I see it and overstockArt has beautiful offerings.
I've purchased quite a few reproductions and always had great pieces arrive. This last purchase however there was ever so slight damage to the top of the frame. I called and it was picked up by FedEx the next day. Very kind, professional, and easy process. Thank you, I'll continue to order my art through you folks!
We ordered the Luxury Line version of Van Gogh's Cafe Terrace and we love it! It's well done, retaining the details of the original but with a little added flair from the gold paint on the stars and windows. If I didn't know better, I would swear this painting adds light to our room at night. I'm very happy with this purchase!
I love overstockArt. I have purchased 5 paintings from them over the years and love them all. Beautiful work, great prices, and quality customer service.
The paintings I received were exceptional in quality and the service staff were more than helpful with helping me arrange my orders. Will buy more in the future!
I ordered this painting to hang above the bed in the bedroom. It is more gorgeous than on the screen. The gold and the colors are so vibrant, the passion of this painting is amazing. Absolutely love my purchase. Arrived quickly and nicely packed with no damage. Very happy with my purchase!
The quality of the piece we ordered was nothing short of perfect, it is perfect quality and will be the center of our dining room for years to come!
Gorgeous painting. Lots of texture. Gold foil on the luxury line adds a great effect. Highly recommended.
This is outstanding. Not only does it have the gorgeous gold foiled accents, but the texture and amount of paint on the canvas is absolutely superb. Brush strokes look amazing, colors are vivid. This is a real treat in my kitchen area. Falling in love with each order I make, but this one has really caught my attention.
This looks gorgeous in our home. Goes well in every room we tested it in.
