Édouard Manet - part 7

1877-82c Édouard Manet portrait by Ferdinand Mulnier
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.


This is part 7 of a 9 – part post on the works of Édouard Manet. For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 -  6 also.



1877 Portrait of Jean-Baptiste Faure
This portrait of the actor Faure drew adverse criticism when it was shown in the Salon of 1877. Faure, who owned many paintings by Manet, refused to accept it.
