Manet - Exhibition Catalogue
MANET: PORTRAYING LIFE FRENCH LANGUAGE EDITION NOW £14.95!
Depicting the Paris of his day, Edouard Manet captured the 19th Century urban experience thereby legitimising 'modern life' as an artistic subject. His detached, frank mode of looking and his subversive handling of both paint and subject-matter shocked his contemporaries and eventually established his reputation as the father of modern painting.
This remarkable book explores Manet's portraiture, a significant yet often neglected aspect of his work, including examples from throughout his career and a thorough review of the artist's stylistic evolution. Lavishly illustrated with paintings, works on paper and photographs of models and sitters, this landmark study throws new light on the quintessential painter of modernity.
The catalogue is available in softback and hardback, 224 pages with 150 illustrations, 27 x 24cm.
