Manet's Men

Edouard Manet (1832-1883) was born into affluence but chose the lowlife profession of the artist. His social position allowed him to take artistic risks those dependent on sales would rarely make. Manet depicted his life in candid and progressive terms. His depictions of men have a lively touch that went from realism to impressionism while retaining a touch of drama inspired by his love of Spanish Baroque painting.
