Asters and Fruit on a Table

Henri Fantin-Latour French

On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 821

Edwin and Ruth Edwards, the English patrons and dealers of Fantin's work, recommended that the artist always use simple vases and plain tabletops in his still lifes in order to show to advantage his great skill in rendering texture and color.
