Peonies! & Peonies! Lilies! & Lilies!

For a wee bit of art history we thought you would enjoy a few images of Henri Fantin-Latour! His stunning oil paintings of flowers are so vast that it could take days to enjoy them all. You will not be able to find this particular type of work here in Chicago. Instead, you could appreciate his Portrait of Manet, another oil on canvas at The Art Institute of Chicago.

Feel free to stop in to smell the flowers this great painter relished.
