Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec immortalized the period now known as La Belle Epoque, during which Paris was the centre of the art world. His first poster fort he Moulin Rouge marked the acceptance of poster design as an art form. A sharp portrayer of celebrities, prostitutes and artists, Lautrec actually led the life so often associated with artists. From aristocratic background, with physical problems, heavy user of alcohol, frequent visitor of brothels and consequently dying at young age. Lautrec was a great admirer of Marcelle Lender and portrayed her in a number of lithographs.
