A painting rather than an a photograph this week. I have this as a postcard and we used it as a prompt this week.
Although the idea is to be inspired by the image without needing to know anything about it’s source, this one might have a story of its own that’s writing about. The portrait is by Toulouse Lautrec and his subject is Rosa La Rouge, a French prostitute. Lautrec died when he was 36, apparently from a mix of alcoholism and syphilis – which he might have contracted from this woman. Something to think about.
