La Blanchisseuse - Toulouse-Lautrec

We just learned about the famous work of art Le Pont de Moret, effet d’orage by French artist Alfred Sisley.

Another famous work of art is La Blanchisseuse by French artist Henri de Toulouse Lautrec in 1886.

Toulouse-Latrec was part of what was called the Post-Impressionism group of artists, where they liked to use bright colors and lots of thick paint.
They liked to make paintings of real things like people and places, but sometimes try to make shapes stand out more or use crazy colors to make an effect.
