This film DVD takes a look into Henri Toulouse-Lautrec's short, but remarkable life as an artist in France during the late 1800s. His works quickly became highly famed, especially his posters, which were influenced by Japanese styles as well as by fellow impressionist artist Edgar Degas. Many of Lautrec's notable works include women in various circumstances and walks of life, such as in his well-known Elles painting depicting sex workers in their dire world. Other famous pieces include At the Moulin Rouge, The Streetwalker, and Woman Before a Mirror. Lautrec came from a noble family and was quite wealthy. However, he was plagued by illness, including a physical deformity and increasing psychological issues. He also succumbed to heavy drinking, which ultimately contributed to his early death in 1901 at the young age of 37.
The DVD contains mature themes and some explicit nudity.
