Реферат: Fantin-Latour, Henri

Fantin-Latour, Henri (1836-1904). French painter and lithographer. He is bestknown for his luxurious flower pieces, but he also painted several groupportraits that are important historical documents and show his friendship withleading avant-garde artists.

Homageto Delacroix (Muséed'Orsay, Paris, 1864) shows Fantin-Latour himself, with Baudelaire, Manet,Whistler, and others grouped round a portrait of Delacroix; and A Studioat Batignolles (sometimes called Homage to Manet)(Musée d'Orsay, Paris, 1870) shows Monet, Renoir, and others in Manet'sstudio. In spite of his associations with such progressive artists,Fantin-Latour was a traditionalist, and his portraits particularly are in aprecise, detailed style.

Much ofhis later career was devoted to lithography; he greatly admired Richard Wagnerand did imaginative lithographs illustrating his music and that of otherRomantic composers.
