Édouard Manet died in Paris a day like today, in 1883

30 April, 2017

French painter Édouard Manet (1832 – 1883) a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. Regarded by many as the “father of Impressionism”, Manet became friend of Monet, Sisley, Degas, Renoir, but preferred to pursue a line that included to exhibit in the Salon and the search of fame and fortune.

His early masterwork – Le déjeuner sur l’herbe and Olympia (above) both caused great controversy at his time.

We highlight the exhibitions Manet, return to Venice, and Manet, inventor du Moderne, at the Musée d’Orsay.
