Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec
I am sick with books.
Once in a while, on my viral journeys through Middle Ages, I come upon something so different and so strong that it instantly reminds me how centuries can be obliterated in a second.
This piece is undeniably ahead of it’s time and it opened to me the world of Nikolaus Gerhaert. According to his Wiki page he is considered to be the most influential northern European sculptor of the 15th century, and it’s easy to see why.
He had a lot of followers which he heavily influenced, but his realism remains unparalleled.
