The subject in Henri de Toulouse Lautrec canvas prints
Henri de Toulouse Lautrec was a direct descendant of an aristocratic family of a thousand years, born on November 24, 1864, at Albi, France. Henri began to draw at an early age and found the arts an escape from his loving but over-protective family. In 1878, Toulouse Lautrec suffered a fall and broke one thigh bone. A year later he fell again and broke the other one. which made his legs never heal properly causing the torso to develop normally but stopping the growth of Henri's legs, rendering them permanently deformed. This lack of mobility also lead to him becoming so invested in painting, which is why you can see in Henri de Toulouse Lautrec canvas prints that there is heavy emotion and depth. Despite his deformity, Henri was extremely social and readily made friends and inspired trust. Among the painter's favorite subjects were the cabaret dancers and the contortionists. One of these dancers was his muse of some time, as you can see her in the Henri de Toulouse Lautrec canvas print named "Yvette Guilbert - Henri de Toulouse Lautrec".

Looking back, this was an extraordinary shift in the history of art, obliterating the boundaries between high art, which is painting, drawing, and sculpture, and low art which are posters, logos and other forms of visual culture. Parisian business owners realized they could make money from his unique and modern vision, as you can see in Henri de Toulouse Lautrec canvas prints like "Jane Avril, Henri Toulouse Lautrec".
