Artwork Description:

Asbjorn Lonvig's words: I was at an exhibition at an art museum. The exhibition was called Hommage Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. I always was fascinated by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec - for thousands of reasons. One of them is Toulouse-Lautrec's first poster, Moulin Rouge - La Goulue, which introduced into poster design a bold simplification of form, space, and composition learned from Japanese woodblock prints. I met him in Moulin Rouge in Paris once. He sure was drunk. Was I? Hommage means in honour of and I saw no honour at all. I had nothing to do but go home and create my own Hommage Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. My inspiration: His art, his hat, his glasses, his beard, his short legs, his clothes. The red scarf is not his own. It is a part of my imaginable perception of Henri Toulouse-Lautrec. Sure it is the scarf of Aristide Bruant on one of Henri Toulouse-Lautrecs most famous posters. Wikipedia's words: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864 1901) was a French painter, printmaker, draftsman, and illustrator, whose immersion in the colourful and theatrical life of fin de sicle Paris yielded an oeuvre of exciting, elegant and provocative images of the modern and sometimes decadent life of those times. Toulouse-Lautrec is known along with Czanne, Van Gogh, and Gauguin as one of the greatest painters of the Post-Impressionist period. At the age of 13 Henri fractured his right thigh bone, and at 14, the left. The breaks did not heal properly. Modern physicians attribute this to an unknown genetic disorder. His legs ceased to grow, so that as an adult he was only 1.22 m (4 ft 6 in) tall, having developed an adult-sized torso, while retaining his child-sized legs, which were 0.70 m (27.5 in) long. Toulouse-Lautrec gave himself up fully to the bohemian life, spending much of his time drinking and carousing - and constantly sketching - in cabarets, racetracks, and brothels.
