Know the Artist: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

In his prolific years as a painter, illustrator, and printmaker, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (b. France, 1864-1901) wielded an immensely impactful style as colorful as his life, spent vigorously documenting the glamor and debauchery of Belle Époque Paris after dark.

This is Several Circles, where we tell the stories of extraordinary artists from across history and the present day. We believe art history content should be accessible—free of charge and impenetrable jargon, but abundant in fascinating facts, illuminating analyses, and entertaining anecdotes.

Each episode is written and hosted by Rachel, an art journalist-turned-copywriter at The Met, and produced by Jason, a New York City art technician. The fuzzy feline superstars are Jimmy (big and bushy) and Tallulah (small with thumbs).

We started this channel to indulge our fascination with what compels an artist to create the way they do, and we intend to grow it into a vast and celebratory archive of the weird and wonderful eccentrics who constitute the art history continuum.
