About this artwork

The composition of this drawing is identical with that of the elegant portrait that Fantin-Latour made of Manet in 1867, also in the Art Institute. The controlled and very finished appearance of this work is characteristic of the drawings Fantin-Latour made after paintings for reproduction in the illustrated press. Indeed, it was drawn as a souvenir of the painting to accompany an article devoted to Manet at the time of the exhibition of his paintings and pastels at the galleries of La Vie Moderne.
