Victoria Dubourg Fantin-Latour French, 1840-1926


Born in Paris, Dubourg trained under Fanny Chéron, copying Old Master paintings in the Louvre. In 1860, she met and befriended Manet, who would have a monumental influence on her career. In 1866, she met Henri Fantin-Latour, and the two married in ten years later. They often collaborated on floral paintings-for which she is particularly known-though works signed V. Dubourg are completely her own. Her painting A Basket of Flowers was included in the 1905 book Women Painters of the World. She belonged to the circle of Manet, Morisot, and Degas, the latter of whom painted her portrait in 1868-69 (which now sits in the Toledo Museum of Art).
