Meaning Behind the Work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Meaning Behind the Work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec | Art for art's sake... | Scoop.it
A look at the meaning behind the work of Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in the context of the cultural and political upheaval taking place in 19th-century Paris.
Daveaitch's insight:
