Sendo ele mesmo um boêmio, faleceu precocemente aos 36 anos de sífilis e alcoolismo. Trabalhou por menos de vinte anos mas deixou um legado artístico importantíssimo, tanto no que se refere à qualidade e quantidade de suas obras, como também no que se refere à popularização e comercialização da arte. Toulouse-Lautrec revolucionou o design gráfico dos cartazes publicitários, ajudando a definir o estilo que seria posteriormente conhecido como Art Nouveau. Filho mais velho do Conde Toulouse-Lautrec-Monfa, de quem deveria herdar o título, falecendo antes do pai.

Citações Toulouse-Lautrec

„Eu tentei desenhar de forma realista e não ideal. Pode ser um defeito, pois não tenho piedade das verrugas e gosto de enfeitá-las com cabelos soltos, para torná-las maiores e mais brilhantes.“

—  Toulouse-Lautrec

I have tried to draw realistically and not ideally. It may be a defect, for I have no mercy on warts, and I like to adorn them with stray hairs, to make them bigger and more shiny.
em carta para Etienne Devismes (1881), como citado in: Keywords of nineteenth-century art - Página 41, Christine Lindey - Art Dictionaries, 2006, ISBN 0953260917, 9780953260911, 240 páginas

„I have tried to draw realistically and not ideally… It may be a defect, for I have no mercy on warts, and I like adorning them with wanton hairs, rounding them off and giving them a bright surface… - A painter in embryo….- Write me a line soon. I am feverish with anxiety.“

—  Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

—  Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
