As with the other titles in this series, this comprehensive book packs a lot of information into a slender volume. These books are great for providing enough detail so that one can become familiar with the subject. I like the clear typeface, numerous full-color photographs, and the many sidebars. Even the size of the book and the quality of the paper make this one worth owning. A pleasure to read, with a wealth of information and a great array of artwork. Great intro to the artist. Recommended!

Even those who are not interested in art know TOULOUSE-LAUTREC, he has become universal.Yes he is the guy who used to hang around bordellos and the MOULIN-ROUGE will always be associated to him.ARISTIDE BRUANT and YVETTE GUILBERT two popular FRENCH singers were immortalize by him.TOULOUSE-LAUTREC was never interested in doing landscapes, he was mostly a portraitist who had fun as a caricaturist of his society LA BELLE EPOQUE.The book summarize his life the way it should be and has some useful documents that makes it interesting.
