Lautrec (1864-1901) was a French artist who exerted remarkable influence over subsequent generations of artists (including Andy Warhol) in spite of a tragically short career complicated by frequent illness. He was particularly noted for his depictions of the Montmartre area of Paris, which attracted many artists to its cafés. Lautrec’s depictions of these scenes produced his first burst of popularity as an artist, though the significance of his work remained a subject of debate throughout his life. Innovative depictions of movement were a recurring theme in Lautrec’s work, and horses particularly were one of his lasting artistic interests.
