Foreword for Acknowledgements TOULOUSE-LAUTREC has often been the victim of legend, and this was true even in his own lifetime. In this biography, I have attempted to discover his real personality but it has not been easy. A lthough, at first sight, Lautrecâs life may seem perfectly familiar, it is not enough, as has too often been done, simply to place him against the gaudy dÃcor of Montmartre and imagine that all has been said. The bright lights of the Butte have concealed Lautrec more often than they have served to illuminate him. Moreover, as far as he was concerned, Montmartre was far from being merely a dÃcor. It was not only the picturesque he found there, but naked humanity. He knew, better than anyone, the bitterness that lay behind the laughter. He was never deceived about men, things or himself His life was short, dramatic and tragic. Few men can ever have been more clearly aware of their destiny, nor lived it with greater lucidity than did Lautrec. It is this destiny I have done my best to relate in this book. My aim has been to keep as close as possible to facts, to be as precise and accurate as I can. I have spared no effort to attain this end.(Typographical errors above are due to OCR software and don't occur in the book.)About the Publisher Forgotten Books is a publisher of historical writings, such as: Philosophy, Classics, Science, Religion, History, Folklore and Mythology.Forgotten Books' Classic Reprint Series utilizes the latest technology to regenerate facsimiles of historically important writings.
