Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec Monfa foi um pintor pós-impressionista e litógrafo francês, conhecido por pintar a vida boêmia de Paris do final do século XIX. 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.

„The Mirlitons in the Place Vendôme, opposite the column! What a crush! A lot of people, a lot of women, and a lot of nonsense! It's a crush made up of gloved hands manipulating tortoiseshell or gold lorgnettes; but it's a crush all the same!“
