Henri Fantin-Latour
À fleur de Peau

Ends in 2 months: September 14, 2016 → February 12, 2017

Best known for his still lifes and group portraits, Henri Fantin-Latour is a somewhat more complex artist than he appears to be. Very attached from his youth to the faithful reproduction of reality, as evidenced by his emblematic works, Fantin also explored a more poetic vein approaching that of the Symbolists. The exhibition focus on the artist from a new perspective by shedding light on his creative process and unveiling, in particular, a corpus of unpublished photographs, a true repertoire of forms for the painter.
