Collection: Edouard Manet

Edouard Manet (1832 - 1883) was a French painter and printmaker whose work transitioned from realism to Impressionism. He is an Impressionist in his attempts to accurately and objectively record scenes through the use of the ever-changing qualities of light and color. His Le Dejeuner sur l"Herbe ("Luncheon on the Grass") (1863) and A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (1882) are seminal works in the Impressionist lexicon.
