Les Fleurs des Champs (1845)

Louis Janmot: Les Fleurs des Champs

Janmot was born into a very religious family (Catholic) and many of his paintings do have a religious theme. He studied with Ingres. This painting (translation: Flower of the Fields) attracted the attention of Baudelaire and gained him access to the Salon of 1846.
