Summary, etc.:
Surveys the life and work of the artist, discussing his impact on Impressionism, his technique, and his crtical reception during his lifetime. The work of Manet is defined in this book - he was an artist who interpreted modern life with a fresh handling of colour and tone. Yet he craved official recognition and was dogged by notoriety. He rejected traditional conventions in paintings such as Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe and Olympia.
