Frederic Bazille was a great Impressionist artist with a short and tragic life. He was the son of wealthy merchants, not really needing anything to do except to inherit the family business when it came time. Instead, he pursued an academic career but quickly dropped that in order to turn his favorite hobby of painting into a career. Chance would have it that he entered the painting studio of artist Charles Gleyre and soon became good friends with Pierre-Auguste Renoir and Claude Monet.
