Édouard Manet - part 6

1874 Édouard Manet 
portrait by Paul Nadar

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 6 of a 9 – part post on the works of Édouard Manet. For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 -  5 also.

In July and August 1874 Manet went on holiday at his family house in Gennevilliers, just across the Seine from Monet at Argenteuil. The two painters saw each other often that summer, and on a number of occasions were joined by Renoir. While Manet was painting this picture of Monet with his wife Camille and their son Jean, Monet painted Manet at his easel.
