Henri Fantin-Latour

Roses [Roses]

Artwork Detail

Fantin-Latour was primarily a painter of flowers and still lifes. He was influenced by Old Masters such as the Venetian painter, Titian (c1487-1576). Unlike the Impressionists, Fantin-Latour preferred to paint in the studio rather than having to deal with constant changes in light out of doors. He became a master in applying paint in thick, sensuous movements. The roses, Fantin Latour, are a pun on the artist’s name, so the work also reads as a self-portrait. The Auckland Art Gallery has one work on paper by Fantin-Latour.
