Happy Birthday Toulouse-Lautrec!

Toulouse Lautrec by Kelsey Montague Art
Celebrating one of my favorite artist’s of all time today. The first time I heard of Toulouse-Lautrec I was in middle school and I was obsessed with Can-Can dancers and the Moulin Rouge (thanks to my Grandma who first introduced the film Can Can to me). His style is completely different than mine but I could stare at his work for hours and completely lose myself every time. In the simplest of ways he captured his surroundings and the essence of a city.
