Frédéric Bazille (1841 - 1870)

Jean Frédéric Bazille (December 6, 1841 – November 28, 1870) was a French Impressionist painter (one of the early impressionist group) best known for his depiction of figures.

Frederic Bazille was born in a Protestant family of the upper middle class of Montpellier in the south of France. His father was a rich landowner and wine grower as well as a notable of the city of Montpellier. In August of 1870, following France’s declaration of war against Prussia, Bazille enlisted. On November 28th, Bazille was killed in an action the same year at Beaune-la-Rolande in Burgundy, before Impressionism had fully developed. He was 29 years old.
