Henri Fantin-Latour

European Art

On View: Morris A. and Meyer Schapiro Gallery, 4th Floor
Madame Léon Maître was the sister-in-law of the pianist Edmond Maître, one of Henri Fantin-Latour’s closest friends. Between 1880 and 1887, the painter included portraits among his annual entries at the widely popular Paris Salon. They consistently attracted great critical attention and, whether commissioned or not, yielded high prices.
