Jean Frédéric Bazille (1841 – 1870).
He was born in Montpellier, France, into a wealthy Protestant family.
He became interested in painting after seeing some works of Eugène Delacroix.
Many of Bazille's major works are examples of figure painting in which Bazille placed the subject figure within a landscape painted en plein air.
