US$741.07Asking Price

About

Very beautiful etching on Chinese paper, signed and dated on plate on the upper right margin. Third and final state of three. Hand-written title on plate on the lower right margin. The artwork represents an intimate scene of two musicians playing Schumann with a very fresh impression. Excellent conditions, including an ivory colored cardboard passepartout 34.5 x 53.6 cm. The artwork presents usual yellowing of paper on the margins, some light foxing on the margins going beyond the marginal line. The image is in perfect conditions. Image dimensions: 18.7 x 27.5 cm Henri Theodore Fantin-Latour (Grenoble, 1836 - Buré, Orne, 1906), French painter and lithographer, well-known for his group portraits of Parisian artists, writers, and musicians and for flower and still-lifes paintings. In 1854, he began studying at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and, for the G. Coubet ‘s atelier, he spent much time copying the old masters of the 16th and 17th century in the Musée du Louvre. Although the French painter made friends with many young artists who would later become associated with Impressionism, including J. Whistler and Manet, Fantin-Latour preserved his style. In England, Fantin-Latour had a great success: Whistler did his best to increase Fantin-Latour's possibilities for professional recognition, and his still-lifes sold so well that they were "practically unknown in France during his lifetime". In addition to his realistic paintings and still-lifes, Fantin-Latour created imaginative lithographs inspired by his passion for the music of some of the greatest classical composers, such as Schumann, Wagner and Berlioz. Today some of his most famous artworks are on display at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Reference: Hédiard 2. This artwork is shipped from Italy.
