One man's style must not be the rule of another's
The year is 1889. We are in Paris close to Montmartre in the district of Pigalle on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18th arrondissement where the Moulin Rouge cabaret opened its doors. Toulouse-Lautrec was commissioned to produce a series of posters. Other artists looked down on the work, but Henri did not care.
Since Montmartre was outside the city limits, free of Paris taxes and no doubt also due to the fact that the local nuns made wine, the hill quickly became a popular drinking area. And where the alcohol is cheap, Artist clutter together. Also Vincent van Gogh, Henri Matisse, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas ( just to name a few) worked and lived in this area of Paris.
