French, 1836–1904

Henri Fantin Latour

Henri was the son of Théodore Fantin-Latour, a painter and teacher of drawing. In 1841, the family moved from Grenoble to Paris where Henri began his training with his father. Between the years of 1850–1854, he studied drawing at the school of Lecocq de Boisbaudran. After a short period at the cole des Beaux-Arts, he worked temporarily in Courbet’s studio. He copied drawings by Flaxman and paintings by Titian and Veronese in the Louvre. In 1859, he was rejected by the Salon in Paris and moved to England, where he also worked and sold pictures. In 1861 he exhibited for the first time at the Salon in Paris and thereafter he continued to show there regularly.
