The image we have of Paris is largely due to the painter and graphic artist Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901) . With his prints, posters, paintings and drawings, the artist immortalized the nightlife of the Belle Époque and placed the Montmartre district in northern Paris on the global map of creative and hedonistic epicenters.

The son of French nobility, Toulouse-Lautrec seems to have been drawn from a very young age to the most worldly environments, with a particular penchant for Montmartre's nightclubs, cabarets and brothels. His models were famous dancers and singers, especially one, Jane Avril. And his works portray both animated scenes in full action and others outside or behind the scenes, calm and tender portraits, such as On the sofa and In bed. Stylistically, the artist mastered both bold graphics, evident in Jane Avril's promotional posters, and loose but highly evocative sketches.

Although he was only 36 years old when he died, due to alcoholism and syphilis, Toulouse-Lautrec left an immeasurable cultural legacy . This essential book on his figure travels through a universe of singers, dancers, musicians and prostitutes to discover an artist endowed with great empathy, an amazing figurative ability and a unique sensitivity to capture the energy and stories of a city.
