Frederic Bazille
 
 

Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Frederic Bazille painting The Heron
 
 
Frederic Bazille, in full Jean-Frédéric Bazille (born December 6, 1841, Montpellier, France—died November 28, 1870, Beaune-la-Rolande), painter who, as a friend, benefactor, and colleague of the Impressionists, played an important role during the movement’s formative years.
 


Frederic Bazille. Self-Portrait

Bazille was an unenthusiastic medical student before his wealthy parents permitted him to study painting. While a student in Paris, he met Monet and Renoir, with whom he worked, traveled, and shared his studio when they could not afford their own. He exhibited at the Salons of 1866 and 1868; in the latter, his Family Reunion had some success. As a painter he combined a certain naiveté with a delicate feeling for nature and an exquisite sense of colour. His landscape figures are strangely immobile and have a sculptural, hard-edge quality. Bazille, who seemed destined to occupy a prominent place among the Impressionists, was killed in the Franco-German War.
