Henri Fantin-Latour was a French artist who was a follower of Gustave Courbet’s realism. Fantin-Latour is perhaps best known for his still-life paintings of flowers. This painting dates from 1854, the year of the his entry into the Beaux-Arts School in Paris, and is a copy of a famous work by Veronese held in the Louvre, Paris. Veronese was an Italian Renaissance artist who painted many large-scale historical and religious scenes. The composition of this work is faithful to the original, but the loose, diffuse brush strokes indicate the unfinished state of the painting.
