Henri Fantin-Latour - part 11

n.d. Self-Portrait pen and ink and wash 18.4 x 15 cm Palace of Fine Arts, Lille, France
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his flower paintings, but he produced many other kinds of work, including several group portraits that are important historical documents and show his friendship with leading avant-garde artists and writers.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 11 of a 13-part series on the works of Henri Fantin-Latour. For biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1-10 also.

Note: The remainder of works in this series on Henri Fantin-Latour are not dated, either because the works are known to be undated or because I couldn't find a relevant date, so they will be from across his career and not in any chronological order.
