Henri Fantin-Latour worked in Paris during the second half of the 19th Century. Although the city was immersed in the middle of the impressionist revolution, the artist kept himself apart the movement, which allowed him to work independently, both creatively and technically.

Along his oeuvre, we can see some portraits of people or mythological characters. But Fantin-Latour preferred to paint flowers, which constitute the 95% of his work. Although he may seem monothematic, each one of his paintings is completely different from the other, as the artist varies the species, the colors and the textures. Fantin-Latour paints, generally, his flowers in vases or glasses, but White phlox, summer chrysanthemum and larkspur is a pleasant exception, as the framing is focused only in them and lacks of accessories.

Fantin-Latour’s work was unnoticed in his country, but he became famous in England, his main market.

    in depth information you present. It’s awesome to
    come across a blog every once in a while that isn’t the same
    out of date rehashed information. Wonderful read!

  3. The handset apparently stands out in detail preservation, white balance and color reproduction. To top it off, this sensor also gives out very less amount of noise in low light conditions.
