• Title: Still Life
  • Creator: Henri Fantin-Latour
  • Date: 1869
  • Physical Dimensions: 18 1/2 x 15 inches
  • Description: Henri Fantin-Latour first attracted public notice for his portraits, but it was his still-life paintings, particularly his luminous bouquets of flowers, that were constantly in demand. Painted in 1869, the present still-life possesses the botanical accuracy, the visual drama, and the attention to surface quality—note the softness of the peach and the hardness of the white compote—that made his work so popular with collectors. This painting’s first owner was Edwin Edwards, a collector in London who was Fantin-Latour’s most important early patron.
