Etching on Rives BFK with one of kind chine colle.

So powerful & loving were Henri Toulouse Lautrec's portraits of the women who worked in brothels in Paris. ( I've never watched Moulin Rouge all the way through but that's the era he lived in.)
I fell for his work immeadiately. His prints and bold graphics, his line work and especially his subjects. Choosing to draw the people he knew best--prostitutes who worked the underbelly of Montmarte at the turn of the century. He potrayed them as humans doing everyday things like washing & dressing, being mothers and tender to each other.
Long story short I connect to his work and made an etching based on one of his most well known paintings.
This little homage is part of a longer narrative piece, but I pulled it out because I find the girl so lovely, pulling on her stockings.
