The Toulouse-Lautrec museum in Albi

This summer I travelled through France. One of the surprises was the red brick town Albi, the home of the Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and a museum devoted to his work. More than 1000 works, including the 30 famous posters, are kept within the walls. This body of work forms the largest public collection in the world devoted to Toulouse-Lautrec.

Albi is a beautiful city in the Midi-Pyrénées région of France. This summer the Episcopal city, situated in the center of the actual city, around the cathedral, was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites. If you want to see it hurry up before it becomes too touristic.
