Frédéric Bazille (1841–1870)
Frédéric Bazille was an Impressionist painter and soldier. Born in Montpellier, Hérault, France, into a middle-class Protestant family, Bazille began studying medicine in 1862, when he met Pierre-Auguste Renoir and was drawn to the Impressionist movement. His career was cut short, when he was killed in action in Beaune-la-Rolande, Loiret during the Franco-Prussian War.

Porte de la Reine at Aigues-Mortes, 1867
Oil on canvas; 31 3/4 x 39 1/4 in.

This work is closely related to two other views of the fortified medieval town of Aigues-Mortes near Montpellier, which Bazille painted during a visit in the summer of 1867. One is the Musée Fabre, Montpellier, and the other in the National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.
