Henri Fantin-Latour

January 14, 1836, Grenoble, Isère – August 25, 1904, Buré, Orne

Ignace Henri Jean Théodore Fantin-Latour was a French painter, printmaker, and illustrator noted for his still lifes with flowers and his portraits, especially group compositions, of contemporary French celebrities in the arts.

His portrait groups, often arranged in rows of heads and figures like 17th-century Dutch guild portraits, are perhaps most interesting for their portrayal of various literary and artistic persons of the time.
