Lautrec ( Visual )
13 editions published between 1998 and 2012 in French and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Como si el resultado de sus famosas exhibiciones fueran alguna indicación, Henri de Toulose-Lautrec, probablemente podría ser descrito como el más famoso pintor francés en nuestros tiempos. Admirado mundialmente por la simplicidad de sus pinturas, su innovadora elección de lo selecto, su gran gusto por el detalle, y su siempre fascinante carácter. No obstante a estar físicamente obstaculizado, codiciaba ampliamente la vida, amaba el espectáculo y saboreaba lo sensual. Este genio pródigo, que muriera joven y tragicamente, es el centro de esta romántica historia. Que se enfoca en el intenso romance que vivió con Suzzane Valadon, la bella mujer que posó para muchos de los grandes pintores de la época, entre ellos Lautrec, Degas y Renoir. Es también una bella descripción de aquella época, a través de la cual Lautrec pasó con inimitable gracia".--Contenedor
