Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Data di nascita: 24. Novembre 1864
Data di morte: 9. Settembre 1901

Il conte Henri-Marie-Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec-Montfa è stato un pittore francese, tra le figure più significative dell'arte del tardo Ottocento. Divenne un importante artista post-impressionista, illustratore e litografo e registrò nelle sue opere molti dettagli degli stili di vita bohémien della Parigi di fine Ottocento. Toulouse-Lautrec contribuì anche con un certo numero di illustrazioni per la rivista Le Rire, durante la metà degli anni novanta.

Soffriva di picnodisostosi, una malattia genetica delle ossa, che può portare a manifestazioni cliniche apparentemente simili al nanismo. Toulouse-Lautrec morì a soli 37 anni circa, a causa dell'alcolismo o della sifilide.
