    Conference by Geneviève Furnémont, guide-lecturer, organized by the association "Les Amis du musée Ingres" Painter, designer, lithographer, poster artist, Toulouse-Lautrec was born in Albi in 1864 and died in the family castle of St André du Bois in 1901 From his youth he was passionate about drawing and painting, he attended painters' workshops including that of the animal painter René Princeteau who transmitted to him the love of horses. The artist's infirmity did not prevent him from settling in Paris and making painting his profession. Living in Montmartre, he draws, sketches, paints artists, the pleasures of the Montmartre night, prostitutes, customers, dancers and cabaret dancers. He has his entries in all the party places of Montmartre where his portraits are caricatures. Despite his reputation as a great artist, Toulouse-Lautrec continued his life of debauchery, his excesses made him sink into crises of delirium until his death at the age of 37. The Palais de La Berbie, the former episcopal palace of Albi, houses the Toulouse-Lautrec museum where the most important collection of the artist's works is kept.
