Manet : Painter of Modern Life Paperback / softback
Part of the New Horizons series
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.
