Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec is one of the legendary artists of 19th-century Paris, famous for traversing the nightspots of the city’s Montmartre district, always with a sketchbook in hand. He was a superb draftsman, able to capture the motion, emotion, and energy of Parisian society with just a few deft strokes of his pencil.

While today, Toulouse-Lautrec’s paintings hang in museums around the world, during his lifetime, he was most famous for his illustrations. The work that originally made him a Parisian celebrity was “Moulin Rouge: La Goulue,” his 1891 four-color lithograph that he designed as an advertising poster for the notorious Moulin Rouge nightclub.
