LAUTREC PORTRAIT of YVETTE GILBERT
Born in Albi on the Tarn river in France and living most of his life in Montmartre . . .
2 places I have spent much time . . .and always being told I look like one of Lautrecs dancers . . .I have forever been drawn to this wonderful painter . . .
Look at some of his work at the WEB MUSEUM in PARIS
