We all know about the famous French museums and might be tempted to overlook one devoted to Toulouse Lautrec. Don't make that mistake! This is an utterly charming museum, housed in a wonderful building, in a sweet city in a little-visited part of France. This very manageable museum traces Lautrec's development and dispels what, for me, was a long-held misperception: namely that he was impoverished, quite freakish, and lived on the outer edges of Montmarte society. In fact, he came from a wealthy family, was adored by his mother, was a savvy businessman, and moved in influential and artsy Parisian circles. It's also easy to combine a visit with the fortress-like cathedral a few steps away.
