A Studio at Les Batignolles is an oil on canvas painting by Henri Fantin-Latour created in 1870. The work is now at the Musée d'Orsay.[1]

Description[edit]

Its staging evokes the studio of French painter Édouard Manet and represents him seated and painting with by his side, seated, Zacharie Astruc. Seen also, from right to left, even if some question the identity of the people depicted, there are painters Claude Monet, Frédéric Bazille, in profile with tartan trousers, Edmond Maître (withdrawn), writer Émile Zola, bearded with eyeglasses in his hand, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, wearing a hat, and Otto Scholderer. It is known a portrait of Zacharie Astruc by Manet, and it is perhaps the episode of the creation of this painting that is represented.[2]

The painting was exibited at the 1870 Salon, in Paris.
