"I am not one who was born in the custody of wisdom. I am one who is fond of olden times and intense in quest of the sacred knowing of the ancients." Gustave Courbet

Happy birthday, Lautrec.

Toulouse-Lautrec, La Chaine Simpson, 1897

Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was born on this day in 1864.

In our time there are many artists who do something because it is new; they see their value and their justification in this newness. They are deceiving themselves.
