Although Fantin-Latour was close with avant-garde artists like Redon, Whistler, and Manet, his own style remained conservative. His lithographs frequently have a hazy, dreamlike quality. Unusually for the period, he printed many of them himself. Fantin-Latour inscribed this sheet to his friend, the art historian Germain Hédiard, who authored the first catalog of his lithographs.
