Lautrec was born an aristocrat but due to childhood illness and injury was rendered a dwarf. He put his disability to good use and by mingling with those on the margins of Paris society became a beloved reporter of the Paris singers, acrobats, dancers and prostitutes. He brought these figures fame through his prints and posters but they were also his true friends.
