Louis Pascal was Lautrec's second cousin, and had been a fellow pupil at the Lycée Fontane in Paris. Lautrec valued his company, as well as that of his mistress, Moute. Pascal later worked as an insurance broker. When he and his family got into financial difficulties in the summer of 1892 they were supported by the Lautrecs.
