Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec was one of the great Post-Impressionist painters and another product of late 19th century France. Moulin Rouge is his film biography.
Learning Guide Excerpt
To demonstrate how our Learning Guides can be used by teachers to improve lesson plans, we have set out below a paragraph from the Learning Guide to Moulin Rouge.
Toulouse-Lautrec was the scion of one of France's oldest aristocratic families. As a youth, due to a congenital calcium deficiency, he broke both legs and they stopped growing. He was thus handicapped for life. Toulouse-Lautrec took up painting during his convalescence and became one of the most original and prolific of French painters. He frequented the cabarets and brothels of Paris and was friends with a number of artists and intellectuals, including Vincent Van Gogh and Oscar Wilde. The Moulin Rouge was a well known cabaret in Paris often visited by Lautrec. One of his most celebrated works is a poster created for the Moulin Rouge. Lautrec died of a stroke brought on by alcoholism.
The Learning Guide to the film Moulin Rouge contains sections on Benefits of the Movie, Possible Problems, Helpful Background, Discussion Questions, Links to the Internet, and Bridges to Reading. The Discussion Questions are divided into three categories: Subject Matter, Social-Emotional Learning, and Moral-Ethical Emphasis.
