Toulouse Lautrec and his Mum

Much of Toulouse-Lautrec’s best-known artwork reflects the dance halls and cafes of Paris. If you visit the museum dedicated to him in his home town of Albi (Episode 08 of our Toulouse series), you will certainly see a good number of his iconic posters, but also some lesser-known paintings, such as this one of his mother looking reflective over breakfast. She it was who, after his death, worked tirelessly to have the museum set up as a memorial to him and his work.
