Original lithograph in black ink on beige wove paper by Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec. Artist’s mongram on the stone upper right. Anna Held is a lithograph prepared in 1898 by Lautrec, but not published until after his death. It was published as part of a collection called Treize Lithographies (Thirteen Lithographs). A total of 440 impressions were made.

Lautrec began a project in 1898 which was intended to include images of reknown entertainers of the time, along with written text about each one. The lithographs were begun and a writer was hired. Thirteen lithographs were completed, but the project as a whole was never published. Portfolios containing just the lithographs (the text was never finished) were published in 1906, a few years after Lautrec’s 1901 death.
