  • Print Description

      The Laundress or La Blanchiesseuse was painted by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec in 1886, France.  This oil on canvas reproduction showcases the hard life of the lower class working women in Europe in the 19th century.  Toulouse's model Carmen Gaudin was a dignified prostitute who became one of Toulouse's favourite models and confidants as she helped him with his art studies in his early 20's.  This art print showcases the longing of The Laundress for something more, Toulouse draws in the viewer with the captivating side profile composition, thought provoking emotion and harmonious colour palette.  This iconic reproduction is a stunning piece of history and post impressionist emotion, worthy of a special place in a modern or minimalist interior.

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 - 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draughtsman, caricaturist and illustrator whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of Paris in the late 19th century allowed him to produce a collection of enticing, elegant and provocative art of the modern, sometimes decadent, affairs of those times.

Toulouse-Lautrec is among the best-known painters of the Post-Impressionist period, and was considered as prominent as celebrated artists Paul Cézanne, Vincent van Gogh and Paul Gauguin.

In a 2005 auction at Christie's auction house, La Blanchisseuse (The Laundress), sold for US$22.4 million and set a new record for the artist for a price at auction.
