Description
Information
Edouard Manet (1832-83) was one of the greatest, as well as one of the most interesting. of 19th century French painters. Acute observation, an extraordinary skillful handling of paint and a feeling for exquisite harmonies of colour make his work both vivid and enchanting. It is also of great significance in the history of European painting, since Manet, a pioneer in depicting modern life in a modern style, was a formative influence on the whole Impressionist movement. 'Olympia' and 'The Picnic' are among the key works of the 19th century.

These, and many other crucial points - among them Manet's personality, with its many contradictions - are fully discussed by John Richardson in his introductory essay, an abridged version of the brilliant text which was widely admired when it was first published in 1958 and which started a full-scale revival of Manet studies.

With notes to the 48 colour plates and comparative illustrations to emphasize the quality, variety and character of Manet's work, this is the perfect introduction to such an influential painter.

Includes 83 illustrations, 52 in colour.
