Complete Works

La Toilette by Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec is an oil on cardboard portrait that was created in 1889. It is on display at the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France along with many of the artist’s other pieces.


Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec enjoyed creating romantic Parisian paintings and this is a piece that proves it. He uses soft lines and colors to create a feminine and romantic appearance in the portrait.


At the center of the portrait is a woman with her back facing the front. She is looking towards a chair in the room that is placed next to a bucket and another chair. Her hair is long and red, but it is tied at the back of her head. She is wearing knee-high black boots but no clothing on her body. She is sitting on white sheets that are also loosely wrapped around her waist. Her naked back can be seen along with a small section of her right thigh.
