Henri Fantin Latour (1836-1904)

Henri Fantin-Latour was born in Grenoble (France). His father, Théodore Fantin-Latour, was an art teacher and a portrait painter. When Henri was 5 years old, the family moved to Paris. Henri ended up at the famous Ecole des Beaux-Arts. Starting from 1853, Henri Fantin-Latour became friends with many great artists, such as Edgar Degas, Edouard Manet and Berthe Morisot. In 1858 he formed, together with James Abbott Whistler and Alphonse Legros, the Société des Trois. Whistler invited Fantin-Latour to England and that gave Fantin-Latour the recognition, especially for his flower pieces. Meanwhile in Paris it was still difficult for any Impressionist to get a foot on the ground. Fantin-Latour took part in a few exhibitions at the Salon des Refusés, but he never acknowledged Impressionist theories.In 1879 Henri Fantin-Latour was awarded the Legion d’Honneur medal by the French government. Henri Fantin-Latour died on August 25, 1904 in his mansion in Buré.
