Henri Fantin-Latour – French Floral and Portrait Painter

Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904) was a French painter best known for his floral paintings and portraits. Although friends with several famous impressionist painters, Fantin-Latour remained a conservative and realistic artist throughout his life. The famous artist James McNeill Whistler brought attention to Fantin in England, where his still-lives sold so quite well. Ironically his works were virtually unknown in his native France. He married a fellow painter, Victoria Dubourg, and died of Lyme disease in 1875. Our set of Fantin-Latour contain many examples of his floral paintings in still life renderings of flowers, roses, and fruit. There are also numerous portraits including Marie-Yolande de Fitz James, Duchess Fitz James, Charlotte Dubourg, Two Sisters, Adolphe Jullien, Mr. and Mme Edwards, and several self-portraits.
