Henri Fantin-Latour’s Roses 

For this week’s Favorite Friday, we are featuring Roses (1887) by Henri Fantin-Latour.

Known for his still life scenes and portraits, Fantin-Latour was a traditional painter in the era of impressionism. His delicate paintings of flowers were his most popular works, especially with English collectors. He was also influenced by music, painting portraits of musicians who were his contemporaries and creating lithographs of fantastical scenes inspired by the operas of Richard Wagner.
