About

An original lithograph on wove paper by French artist Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904) titled "Vison", 1895. Limited edition: approx. 1,500. Printed by Lemercier and published by Gazette des Beaux-Art, both in Paris, France. Reference: Sanchez & Seydoux 1895-6, page 126. Original cover tissue sleeve mounted at left margin as issued. Sheet size: 11" x 7.38". Image size: 7.5" x 5.75". Some minor discoloration in margins. It is otherwise a strong impression in excellent condition. This lithograph was published by Gazette des Beaux-Arts. The Gazette des Beaux-Arts was a French art review, found in 1859 by Édouard Houssaye, with Charles Blanc as its first chief editor. Assia Visson Rubinstein was chief editor under the direction of George Wildenstein from 1928 until 1960. Her papers, which include all editions of the Gazette from this period, are intact at the Cantonal and University Library of Lausanne in Dorigny. The Gazette was a world reference work on art history for nearly 100 years - one other editor in chief, from 1955 to 1987, was Jean Adhémar. It was bought in 1928 by the Wildenstein family, whose last representative was Daniel Wildenstein, its director from 1963 until his death in 2001. The review closed in 2002. Henri Fantin-Latour, in full Ignace-Henri-Jean-Théodore Fantin-Latour (born Jan. 14, 1836, Grenoble, France—died Aug. 25, 1904, Buré), French painter, printmaker, and illustrator noted for his still lifes with flowers and his portraits, especially group compositions, of contemporary French celebrities in the arts. Fantin-Latour’s first teacher was his father, a well-known portrait painter. Later, he studied at the school of Lecoq de Boisbaudran and attended the École des Beaux-Arts. He exhibited at the official French Salons, but in 1863 he also showed his work in the rebel Salon des Refusés. Although academic in manner, Fantin-Latour was independent in style. He had numerous friends among the leading French painters of his day, including J.-A.-D. Ingres, Eugène Delacroix, Camille Corot, Édouard Manet, and Gustave Courbet. His portrait groups, often arranged in rows of heads and figures like 17th-century Dutch guild portraits, are perhaps most interesting for their portrayal of various literary and artistic persons of the time. Fantin-Latour’s flower paintings were particularly appreciated in England, where, through James McNeill Whistler and Sir John Everett Millais, Fantin-Latour found a patron in Edwin Edwards. A wealthy amateur engraver, he supported Fantin-Latour for years by purchasing his still lifes. The last period of Fantin-Latour’s life was primarily devoted to lithography. In the Salon of 1876 he exhibited L’Anniversaire, honouring composer Hector Berlioz, and thereafter his lithographs were shown regularly. Most characteristic were his delicate portraits and imaginative drawings illustrative of the music of Richard Wagner, Berlioz, and others. He also illustrated Adolphe Jullien’s biographies of Wagner (1886) and Berlioz (1888).
