Henri Fantin-Latour - part 10

1895 Self-Portrait oil on canvas 54 x 44 cm Galleria degli Uffizi, Florence, Italy
Henri Fantin-Latour (1836 – 1904) was born Ignace Henri Jean Théodore Fantin-Latour in Grenoble, France in 1836. A painter and lithographer, he is best known for his flower paintings, but he produced many other kinds of work, including several group portraits that are important historical documents and show his friendship with leading avant-garde artists and writers.

In spite of his association with such progressive artists, Fantin-Latour was essentially a traditionalist. Much of his later career was devoted to lithography; he greatly admired Richard Wagner and did imaginative lithographs illustrating his music and that of other composers. His wife Victoria Dubourg (1840-1926) was also a painter, mainly of flower pieces.

This is part 10 of a 13-part series on the works of Henri Fantin-Latour. For biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1-9 also.
