Édouard Manet - part 4

Edgar Degas 1864-65 Manet Seated, Turned to the Right etching and drypoint 19.5 x 13 cm (plate) Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York
Édouard Manet (1832 – 1883) was a French painter. He was one of the first 19th century artists to paint modern life, and was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. His early masterworks “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” (The luncheon on the Grass) and “Olympia”, both painted in 1863, caused great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, these are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art.
