Citáty Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec


„I have always been a pencil.“

— Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Quoted in: Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, ‎Riva Castleman, ‎Wolfgang Wittrock (1985) Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec: images of the 1890's . p. 44


„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
p. 60 - quote in a letter to his friend Etienne Devismes, Summer of 1881 his friend Etienne Devismes had just finished a novel 'Cocotte', and asked Lautrec to illustrate it. Lautrec made twenty-three pen and ink drawings and sent them to Devismes with a letter

„Love is when the desire to be desired takes you so badly, that you feel you could die of it! [And then probably with a fourth sniff as a break] Eh? What? Isn't that so, my dear chap?“

— Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
p. 76 according to Henri Perruchot: 'And then - he would make a joke - stuttering and lisping, with a sniff like a laugh at every three words, or some half melancholy comment in his own particular vein'


„I paint things as they are. I don't comment. I record.“

— Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
Quoted in: Henry O. Dormann (2009) The Speaker's Book of Quotations, Updated and Revised. p. 26

„Love is a disease which fills you with a desire to be desired.“

— Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

„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!“

— Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
p. 83 - from a note of his impressions Lautrec visited in the Spring of 1885 several exhibitions in Paris, he made a note of his impressions. His spontaneous criticisms were irreverent, with a certain irony. 'Le Mirliton', a Paris cabaret, was opened in 1885 by Aristide Bruant
