Another take on ‪#‎Youth‬ is considering the artist’s age when creating a work of art. We often don’t consider the stage of an artist’s life when he or she worked on a picture. Let your eyes wander over this painting, “The Artist’s Dog Flèche” by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. What do you notice first in this work of art?
Lautrec was the only surviving son of closely related families from the provincial aristocracy of southwestern France. His father and his uncles were talented amateur artists, and Lautrec showed a keen interest and natural ability in drawing from childhood. His first art teacher encouraged his efforts, and Lautrec persuaded his parents to allow him to pursue further training in Paris. This picture was painted when he was just 17. Is there anything that indicates Lautrec painted this when he was a young artist? ‪#‎ArtAtoZ‬
