One of Henri Fantin-Latour's pieces, Un Coin de table, is widely known. It includes the admirable portrait of the poet Rimbaud. Despite the worldly success which Fantin-Latour enjoyed in his day, in recent years he has been neglected by art-historians. There are few publications about him. This volume draws a synthesis of his mysterious and seductive work. Though he was a friend of the Impressionists, Fantin-Latour did not join them. He was also a friend of the academic painters, although he did not share their prejudiced reading of new painting. He was an isolated artist. His work ranges from group-portraits from the art circles of his time, still lives and portraits. The most intriguing part of his work are the paintings of his family and friends. Within this volume, Jean Jacques Leveque highlights some of the most vivid works from the late 19th-century.
