Favorite Artists: Henri Toulouse-Lautrec (1864-1901)
I’m drawn to artists who do not shy away from showing the more graphic part of their work. This probably has to do with the fact that I draw as well, I’m the kind of person who loves to look at an artist’s sketchings (and it’s not unusual that I prefer them to the final product cf. Leonardo Da Vinci). What I like about Toulouse-Lautrec is that his art is always in an in between, the lines are strong and present but they still leave plenty of room to the power of color. His work always seems caught in the movement of its making. Each piece is a moment that is finished and yet waiting to be continued.
