Victoria Duburg studied painting with portrait painter Fanny Cheron. In 1866, while copying paintings in the Louvre, she met the artist Henri Fantin-Latour, and 10 years later they got married. Their marriage made friends happy - Edouard Manet, Bertu morizo, Edgar Degas, they claimed that unsociable and shy Henri had changed for the better.

Degas wrote portrait of Victoria, on him she is in a lush brown dress, an earthy and at the same time special woman. The artist in the picture focuses on her hands and her posture - she sits, bent over to her interlocutor and seems to be listening attentively.

Such was Victoria, an intelligent woman who knew how to listen and helped Henri Fantin-Latour in his work. At the same time, the artist continued to paint herself, regularly exhibited her still lifes at the Salon and in 1895 received a medal.

After the death of her husband in 1904, Victoria was engaged in organizing exhibitions and compiling a catalog of paintings by Henri Fantin-Latour.
