Nobody was more Parisian than Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, the painter who captured the color and sweat of turn-of-the-century Montmartre and its Moulin Rouge scene in a stripped-down working way, where you could taste the absinthe and choke on the Gauloises.

Known as the quintessential Parisian rake, Toulouse-Lautrec was actually a transplant, born into an old aristocratic family, the de Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfas, whose château, the Château du Bosc, in the South of France near the city of Albi, was Henri’s birthplace and occasional vacation retreat.
