Fantin-Latour, Henri (1836-1904) by Scholes, Robert

Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904) From Wikipedia: He was born in Grenoble, Rhône-Alpes, France, he studied at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris and although he was painting at the time of the Impressionists, he created his own unique realistic style. He would be best known for his flower paintings and group portraits of many of the contemporary Parisian artists and writers who were his friends. His work would strongly influence the future symbolist movement. It was who brought attention to Fantin in England at a time when French Impressionist painting, or any painting having dealings with the impressionists, was being overlooked by the Parisian art community.
