Édouard Manet - part 8


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


1880 A Bunch of Asparagus:

1880 A Bunch of Asparagus oil on canvas 46 x 55 cm Wallraf-Richartz Museum, Colgne, Germany

Manet sold Charles Ephrussi A Bunch of Aspargus for eight hundred francs. But Ephrussi sent him a thousand francs, so Manet painted this single Asparagus and sent him a note saying “There was one missing from your bunch.”
