Mini Masterpieces

The Laundress

After Toulouse-Lautrec, The Laundress

Not long ago a friend who inspired me to pick up a paint brush for the first time about ten years ago mentioned how he loved the painting, The Laundress, by Henri Marie Raymond de Toulouse-Lautrec, the  French painter, printmaker, draughtsman, caricaturist, and illustrator.

As a way of saying thank you I decided I  would paint him a copy.  Painting this was so much fun that I decided I would continue to paint diminutive copies of well known works.  I started a Facebook group for the posting of small works, Mini Masterpieces.
