Un Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Muséé d'Orsay, RMN & Grand Palais, 2019
Probably the most lively and moving portrait of Toulouse-Lautrec, the biography written by his friend Thadée Natanson, the husband of Misia, has retained all its evocative power. Throughout his memories, Natanson brings the artist back to life, allows us to hear his voice, his expressions, to observe him and to capture snapshots of his life. No detail of the complex personality of Toulouse-Lautrec seems to escape the attentive gaze of his closest companion, who knows how to make us love him, as much as he admired.
