Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870) is one of the lesser known Impressionists -- perhaps because he was killed in battle during the Franco-Prussian War in 1870, before the Impressionist group really saw much success.
Like other young Impressionists, he greatly admired Edouard Manet, and like another young artist of the group, Henri Fantin-Latour, he painted his colleagues assembled around Manet in the studio on rue de la Condamine.
