    One thought on “Toulouse-Lautrec and Montmartre”

    1. I love TL's studies of people, sometimes world-weary, sometimes grotesque, but always full of feeling and life.

    2. Well illustrated and researched book on the topic of Lautrec's influence on painting and Montmartre, and their influence on him.
