Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse Lautrec Monfa (his real name), lived a happy childhood until a bone disease crippled him for life.

His artistic journey is radically transformed when he discovers Montmartre. He then decides to dedicate his talent to paint this unique microcosm both casual and raunchy. He becomes at the same time an actor and spectator of the Montmartre scene.

His work remains rich despite a short life tainted by illness.
