The painter Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec worked in Paris in the 1890’s and is famous for his portrayal of the city’s bohemian life. A fall from a horse in childhood stunted the growth of his legs and the image of the elegant dwarf who painted so beautifully the glitter and decadence surrounding him, has become a symbol of his time. Much of his work was done in the brothels of Paris. His mistress, Yvette Gilbert, is shown here peeping out at the audience from the folds of his jacket. Handmade. Limited Edition. Official Frank Meisler Gallery brand exclusive certificate of authenticity. Metal Alloys with silver/gold plated elements. Marble base.

We inhabit the world with the animal kingdom, they are our cousins with whom we share the pain and pleasure of the planet we live on. Ferocious, pathetic, playful and pretentious, we also share their characteristics. In our animal sculptures we seek to capture this common ground. Like all living things our animals have moving parts, textures and shades that await to be explored.
Large sculptures keep us busy but we allow time for making beauty in miniature - objects of art to wear. When we see our jewelry displayed on the body of its owner as a statement of his choice, we feel the pleasure of a silent bond, a little secret shared with a stranger.
PROFESSIONS & HOBBIES
The professions and hobbies we practice shape our lives and alter us. This is emphasized in the group of figures who pose, perspire, lecture us, swing bats and golf clubs. They humorously draw us into their activities, make us swing their heads and open hidden doors to expose their hidden secrets and surprises.
Our Universal Figures embrace images of painters, artists and great thinkers we admire. In each we look to express what motivates the figure to be what it is.
