Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was a French artist who lived in the late 1800’s. The 4’8” aristocrat was sickly most of his life with a congenital health condition similar to present-day osteoporosis, so he spent most of his days painting. Toulouse-Lautrec spent honed his craft in Paris’ well-known art district Montmartre with contemporaries like Vincent Van Gogh. The Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento is currently exhibiting some of Toulouse-Latrec’s paintings, drawings, journals, theater posters and programs.
