About this artwork

The Fairy of the Alps is one of many themes that Fantin drew from the work of the avant-grade composer Robert Schumann (1810-1856). The important relationship of German avant-garde music to French art of the late nineteenth century is particularly evident in the work of Fantin-Latour and Odilon Redon.
