Still Life with Roses and Fruit

Henri Fantin-Latour French

Not on view

In this early painting, which is interesting for its slightly eccentric, off-balance composition, Fantin had yet to achieve the extraordinary realism associated with his still lifes of the mid- to late 1860s. However, his eye for subtle color harmonies was already well-developed, as evident in the juxtaposition of the pinkish-white Malmaison roses, purple-tinged grapes, and golden pear.
