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.
"Rapture of Psyche" was well-done; it came framed and ready to hang for a very reasonable price!
Had two important questions arrive after I placed the order. Both questions were answered within 15 minutes of sending the email. I believe the Customer Service department is top notch, as is the site with Pictures, Dimensions, and options...
I recently made a purchase and forgot to submit the coupon. I called and was amazed to have the phone answered after the second ring--- by a human!! A very pleasant and extremely helpful human! He was great!!! And made my shopping experience with overstockArt a very pleasing experience!
I've purchased two pieces for my office so far and am about to receive my third. Both pieces were of good quality. They are light weight, well framed, and appealing on the wall. I look forward to doing business with OverstockArt in the future.
Stunning Art for a great price! Arrived fast, well wrapped and amazing customer service. I am so impressed by this that I might have to look for my other favorite paintings ;)
I ordered two framed pieces and they arrived quickly and were more beautiful than I imagined they would be. There were of high quality too. Frames are terrific!! I will be a return customer!!
Gustav Klimt painted this portrait in 1907 using gold leaf in his oil paint. When OverStockArt advertised that its “Luxury Line” gold and silver enhancements would be added to the reproduction I felt that the shimmery finish of this masterpiece might be accurately reproduced. I was right. My reproduction of Adele Bloch-Bauer is exquisite. It lights up the room and catches the light beautifully. I am so thrilled that I have already ordered Klimt’s “The Kiss”!
Love the Monet oil painting. I was looking for authentic art (not prints) and this actual oil on canvas was right for the room. Packaged for shipping was great. I got it with a frame and was ready to hang. All I needed was a hammer. Price was right. Will enjoy this for years.
What a beautiful painting! It is the focal point of the room and all who see it comment on it. Wonderful!
I have bought two Renoir's and they did not disappoint in the least. They are absolute pieces of work and the frames are lovely. When you call someone actually answers the phone and is helpful.
