Edouard Manet the pre-Impressionist bourgeois

Edouard Manet

Édouard Manet was a French painter. He was one of the most important artists of the nineteenth century to paint modern life in an unconventional way and was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism.

Manet opened his studio only in 1856, at the beginning of his thirties, after failing some exams to become a judge as his father wanted.

His first masterpieces, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe) and Olympia, both made in 1863, aroused great controversy but acted as catalysts for the young painters who approached Impressionism and by whom he was understood.

Although his work was impressionist, he resisted involvement with any specific style of painting and never followed avant-garde positions, preferring to show his works at the Paris Salon rather than at numerous Impressionist exhibitions, while also maintaining a rather detached attitude with the Impressionists.
