MANET

ALAN KRELL    Book Number: 82804    Product format: Paperback

Dripping with colour this beautiful heavyweight softback has hundreds of mono and colour examples plus drawings and posters. Edouard Manet (1832-83) is ubiquitous in the popular imagination as the painter of Le Déjeuner sur L'herbe, painted and exhibited in 1863. The book brings together a huge number of paintings, drawings and prints including the 1859 shown The Absinth Drinker, the portrait of his parents, Portrait of M. and Mme August Manet, and The Spanish Singer. The former was derided as a piece of vulgar realism - 'What a scourge to society is a realist painter!' Enjoy the exquisite charm of Fishing, Music in the Tuileries with the fashionably dressed crowd and representations of his close circle and the artist himself standing on the fringe of the gathering, in the wonderfully colourful festive scene. The Little Cavaliers shows the influence of Velázquez and his drawings show the value he placed in studying Old Masters. Dozens of other artists from Raphael, Degas, Titian and Goya and more are shown in comparative themes to show how the artist's progressive social views on sexuality, the position of women and on the family were expressed through his 'modern' style, deeply rooted in European artistic tradition. A Thames & Hudson softback, 208pp, colour.
