Famous French impressionist Frederic Bazille was born in 1841 and died prematurely in the Franco-Prussian War just before his 29th birthday and only a month after joining the French Army.
Frederic Bazille was inspired by the paintings of Eugene Delacroix but his wealthy parents were adamant that he should study medicine although he was allowed to study painting at the same time. It was while studying in Paris that Bazille met with Renoir and Sisley and become a founder member of the Impressionist Art Movement. Bazille became acquainted with Monet and Manet and shared his studio with them, although they all preferred to work en plein air.
By the age of 23 Bazille had completed some his most famous paintings. Famous Frederic Bazille oil on canvas paintings include The Pink Dress which is held at the Musee d'Orsay, The Family Reunion, or Family Gathering 1867, Summer Scene, Bathers, 1869.
