Henri Toulouse-Lautrec déféque sur la plage du Crotoy en Picardie, Maurice Joyant (French), 1898, carte-de-visite photographs

So one day back in ‘98, gallery owner Maurice Joyant and Henri Toulouse -Lautrec went to the beach. If you ever labored under the misconception that Lautrec was a refined sorta fellow, you’ll realize he just shat all over that belief, and made post cards out of it. Why? Who knows, prolly something to do with fin de siècle malaise. At present, though, I can certainly identify with the assy sentiment expressed.
