Description
Gouache on paper. Featuring a portrait. Signed and attr. Edouard Manet (French, 1832-1883) on the lower right corner. 41.5 x 30 cm (16.3 x 11.8 inches). Edouard Manet was a French Impressionist painter who had an important impact on the course of Western art. Frontal lighting, impasto brushstrokes, and controversial depictions of nude women in contemporary settings-as seen in Olympia(1863)-are hallmarks of his work. “A painter can say all he wants to with fruit or flowers or even clouds,†he once explained. Born on January 23, 1832 in Paris, France, he grew up in a bourgeois family before joining the Merchant Marines in hopes of being accepted into the Naval Academy. Despite his father’s wishes, Manet instead entered the studio of the painter Thomas Couture. Perhaps his most influential experience came while visiting Spain and the Netherlands, where he saw the works of Diego Velazquez, Francisco De Goya, and Frans Hals-these earlier painters influenced Manet’s use of loose and abbreviated brushwork to convey form and light. In 1863, his work Le Dejeuner sur l’Herbe was rejected from the official Salon and hung in the Salon de Refuses, where it drew criticism from both the general public and journalists. Despite this set back, Manet continued to explore his own way, with encouragement from his friend the poet Charles Baudelaire. Around this time, he began to frequent the Cafe Guerbois where he mingled with a number of young painters including Paul Cezanne, Claude Monet, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Though he suffered criticism early on, by the late 1870s his works were lauded both by the Salon and his peers. He died of complications from syphilis on April 30, 1883 in Paris, France. Today, the artist’s works are in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., the Musee d’Orsay in Paris, and the Alte Nationalgalerie in Berlin, among others. PROVENANCE: Private estate (Perugia, Italy)
