"Fantin-Latour on edge" at the Luxembourg Museum, Paris.
Interior scenes with striking realism,
Still lives reinvented in real portraits of flowers and dreams made of enchanting body, the painting work of Henri Fantin-Latour reveals the many facets of a virtuoso artist who lived and experienced the consecration during his life. Named paintings « of imagination,” his paintings are reminiscent of Odilon Redon or even foreshadow Marc Chagall with these ill-defined shapes and these clouds of smoke dream. Long confined to a work of orders, Fantin-Latour “pleased” in his own words, once gained fame to work, on compositions that take him more to heart.
