Description
Depicting the Paris of his day, Edouard Manet (1832–83) captured the 19th-century urban experience, legitimizing modern life as an artistic subject. His detached, frank mode of observation and his subversive handling of both paint and subject matter shocked his contemporaries, though these very qualities would eventually establish his reputation as the father of modern painting. This beautifully illustrated catalogue explores Manet's portraiture—a significant yet often neglected aspect of his work—and presents more than 60 examples from throughout his career, as well as works on paper, and photographs of models and sitters. Six essays offer a thorough review of the artist's stylistic evolution, considering the influence of 17th-century Dutch painters, parallels with the work of Renoir, and links with early photography.

"Lush portraits as arresting today as they were when they were first exhibited."—Vogue
