The 25 Most Memorable Portrayals of Real Artists in Movie History

10. Jose Ferrar as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec

Character: Henry de Toulouse-Lautrec

Film: Moulin Rouge

Year Released: 1952

Not to be confused with Baz Luhrmun's epic extravaganza, John Huston's Moulin Rouge, focuses on the celebrated artist and printmaker's relationship with his favorite club. Despite finding success in his art and friends to fill his nights, the suffering artist(due to a congenital defect, Luatrec did not grow or develop properly) finds love in a lady of the night who asks for his help. Just as full of joy and music as it's 2003 counterpart, Jose Ferrer takes the role of a lifetime in one of Huston's underrated masterpieces.
