About The Lady of the Star Harbour

The artwork titled “The Lady of the Star Harbour” is a creation by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a renowned artist associated with the Post-Impressionist movement. Crafted in 1899, the medium consists of oil on board with dimensions measuring 41 by 32.8 centimeters. This portrait is part of the collection at the Musee Toulouse-Lautrec in Albi, France, offering viewers a glimpse into the unique style and approach of the artist.

“The Lady of the Star Harbour” presents a woman portrayed in a candid, profile view. Her facial features are animated and gracefully defined, suggesting a moment of lightheartedness or contemplation. The brushwork is loose and expressive, typical of Toulouse-Lautrec’s technique, capturing a sense of movement and liveliness. Bold strokes and a vibrant palette accentuate the sitter’s golden curls and the refined textures of her attire, while the background hints at an abstracted, perhaps urban, setting. The painting exudes a certain intimacy, inviting observers to ponder the story and character of the woman depicted. Through a masterful interplay of color, form, and composition, Toulouse-Lautrec encapsulates the essence of his subject within the broader context of Post-Impressionist artistic endeavors.
