Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec "Woman at tub" Lithograph
"Woman at tub. (Pl. Of the suite Elles)" by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. A sensitive and unusual portrait of a French courtesan, Toulouse-Lautrec engineered this delicate portrayal as part of his Elles series, for which the artist spent weeks living in a brothel situated at the rue des Moulins. Capturing a young female courtesan as she leans over gently to fix a bath, Lautrec imbues the commonplace scene with his particular brand of magic; his sophisticated sketchiness and carefully muted palate adding to the intimacy and meditative calm of the poetically tranquil composition.
