Etymology[edit | edit source]

ロートレク transliterates from "Lautrec." First mention by Cynthia.[10] Lautrec and the central region of Toulouse both allude to the French Post-Impressionist painter, Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec (1864–1901).

The artist's name derives from the medieval village of Lautrec. From the Occitan l'autreg, deriving from octroi, a wholesale or retail tax on local goods.
