Nov 24, 1864. French illustrator, lithographer, post-Impressionist painter. Born at Albi, France, Lautrec, deformed at an early age, found in the bohemian demimonde of Paris, especially the nightclubs and brothels of Montmartre, an outsider atmosphere that enticed him both personally and professionally. His drawings and posters in particular evoke the nightlife and habitués of that world. “Ugliness, everywhere and always, has its enchanting side,” Lautrec said. “It is fascinating to discover it where no one else had noticed it.” He died Sept 9, 1901, at Château Malromé, Gironde, France.
