  • Print Description
      Henri de Toulouse was one of the most iconic painters of the impressionist and post impressionist periods.  The Red Head or Rousse was originally created with oil on cardboard in 1889 and previously hung in The Lourve, Paris.  Toulouse depicts a red-headed woman, stripped to the waist, seated on the floor, facing away from the viewer, just before or just after bathing.  This captivating impressionist reproduction employs a light colour palette of predominantly blues with yellowish greens and red for the woman's hair, thinned with turpentine to create a loose effect. Toulouse's elevated viewpoint and perspective of his model shows some influence from Edgar Degas who used similar perspectives for his celebrated impressionist work. This reproduction is a stunning piece of history and 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.
