29 September 2009 - 10 January 2010. Born in Grenoble, France, the artist Henri Fantin-Latour (1836-1904) was a contemporary of impressionist pioneers such as Degas and Manet. Despite a similarity in style to the impressionists, and perhaps unfairly, Fantin-Latour was never judged to be in the same league as his contemporaries. The artist is famous for his paintings of flowers, still lives and allegoric scenes, all painted in an impressionistic but realistic manner. The Museo Thyssen-Bornemisza has sourced over 70 works from the collections of private individuals and international museums to offer a comprehensive overview of Fantin-Latour's artistic career.
