Henri Fantin-Latour befriended and exhibited with the impressionists while maintaining an independent style and academic manner steeped in the traditions of the Renaissance. Characterized by their vivid color harmonies, intricate brushwork and attention to detail, his flower still lifes were a runaway success during his lifetime, in such demand among English collectors that they were practically unknown in France. “Fantin,” wrote painter Jacques-Emile Blanche, “studied each flower, each petal, its grain, its tissue, as if it were a human face. In Fantin’s flowers, the drawing is large and beautiful, as it is always sure and incisive.” Devoid of allegory or symbolism, they defied 19th century standards of high art and dared to be merely beautiful.
