Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: A Suite of Color Drawings at the Circus
TOULOUSE-LAUTREC, Henri de; Seitz, William C.
Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) was a post-impressionist painter, illustrator, and artist of fin-de-siècle Paris. Associated with Symbolism, Decadence, and Modernism, Lautrec's depictions and interpretations of modernity's excesses are a major influence on many modern art movements. These images from his study of the Circus and Circus performers are representative of his peculiar, anti-realist style.
