A fresh look: Pivotal paintings of modernityLampooned during his lifetime for his style as much as his subject matter, French painter �douard Manet (1832�1883) is now considered a crucial figure in the history of art, bridging the transition from Realism to Impressionism.Manet�s work combined a painterly technique with strikingly modern images of contemporary life, centered on the urban Paris experience. He recorded the city�s parks, bars, and cabarets, often delighting in the frisson of underground or provocative content. The Paris salon rejected his D�jeuner sur l�herbe with its juxtaposition of fully dressed men and a nude woman, while the steady gaze and unabashed pose of the prostitute Olympia, a very modern reworking of Titian�s Venus of Urbino, caused a society scandal.With rich illustration, this book introduces Manet�s work and his uniquely influential combination of Realism, Impressionism, and reworked Old Masters that would become paradigms of a brave new world for generations of modernists to come.About the series:Each book in TASCHEN�s Basic Art series features: a detailed chronological summary of the life and oeuvre of the artist, covering his or her cultural and historical importance a concise biography approximately 100 illustrations with explanatory captions
