Things to be remembered for. 😳

Modern physicians attribute Toulouse-Lautrec's disability to a genetic disorder, caused by his aristocratic family's history of inbreeding.&10;As well as his fame as a painter, Toulouse-Lautrec was also infamous for his hedonistic lifestyle. His walking cane was hollowed out and filled with liquor, and he was also known to frequent prostitutes, often depicting them in his work.&10;By 1899 Toulouse-Lautrec's alcoholism was worsening and, following a collapse, he was committed to hospital. After his release his mental and physical health declined rapidly, compounded by the effects of syphilis.&10;He died in 1901, aged 36.
