HENRI FANTIN-LATOUR (French / 1836-1904)

One of the most important French painters of the nineteenth century, Ignace Henri Jean Théodore Fantin-Latour was a supporter and friend of Impressionists such as Monet, Manet and Degas, but never became an Impressionist himself. His particular brand of realism was, however, to profoundly influence the Symbolists, through his admirer Odilon Redon. In later life Henri Fantin-Latour devoted considerable attention to lithography; many of his lithographs were based on earlier paintings or drawings. Fantin-Latour was born in Grenoble, the son of the painter Théodore Fantin-Latour. His father was his first teacher, but he later studied under Lecoq de Boisbaudran and Gustave Courbet.
