IN his youth Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec broke both legs. Tragically, the bones failed to heal properly and his legs stopped growing. When he reached maturity his upper body was of normal size but his legs were abnormally short.
But it wasn't all bad news. Other parts of the prominent artist's body were, well, prominent - hence the nick name “Teapot” given to him by the strippers, prostitutes and others with “first hand” knowledge who he came across in his beloved Montmartre.
And while size isn't everything, it is when you have bare walls to fill, and today Museums and Galleries Liverpool are offering the lucky winners of our competition some stonking goodies as their High Kicks and Low Life exhibition of Toulouse Lautrec prints goes into its final three weeks.
Toulouse-Lautrec spent significant amounts of time under the Moulin Rouge nightclub's famous red windmill, sketching his favourite dancers and visiting his favourite prostitutes, savouring a world he could pay, sleep with, and then paint.
Want a keepsake? We have nine mounted A3 prints of TL's famous Moulin Rouge poster, plus a ginormous Divan Japonais to give away today. Plus, a handsome volume of prints in a book from Taschen Press.
To be in with a chance of winning any of these, just complete the word missing from the song lyrics below. What have you got Toulouse?
Closing date: August 5.
