Lautrec’s dynamic lines communicated the movement within his world of singers, dancers, circus performers, musicians and the hustle and bustle of 19th century Parisian nightlife. ”Many late nineteenth-century Parisian artists gave themselves up to “the green” with passion in their quest for more original and exquisite ideas. Among the most prominent of these was Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, who illustrated the life of the music halls, the bars, the brothels and, in particular, the Moulin Rouge.”-Tate.org.uk #lautrec #toulouselautrec #drinkanddraw #absinthe #draw #drink #henridetolouselautrec #ldg @ginandbeer #dance #bar #lifedrawing #londonevents
