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 ordered The Kiss for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The Luxury Line version on this painting has the additional textures and depth which really bring this painting to life. The website recommended frames that would match the painting and their choice was spot on. Very happy with my purchase!
Dance at Bougival is one of my favorite Renoir paintings. I had a cheap print but this one on canvas gives me so much joy. I just love it!
