The Distinctive, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec Died This Day 110-Years Ago; September 9, 1901.
Though his name might not readily come to mind, there is no question that is work is distinctive and widely known. I am sure many people associate Parisian Can-Can with his posters.
I am “OK” with his work. He is not in my top 30, but that doesn’t mean I don’t appreciate and admire his work.
During my 18-year association with Paris I got to know Montmartre, the focus of much of his work, very well. So that is another connection we have.
Until I was doing this post I had no idea that he was physically disabled much of life and died at 36. Wow. 36! Just think how much more he could have done if he lived to be at least 60.
