Victoria Dubourg or Victoria Fantin-Latour (French flower painter)

Dubourg was born in Paris and trained with Fanny Chéron, copying old masters such as Willem Kalf in the Louvre. There she met the painter Henri Fantin-Latour, whom she married in 1876. She collaborated with him on floral paintings, but also produced works under her own name that she signed "V Dubourg". Her painting A Basket of Flowers was included in the 1905 book Women Painters of the World.
