Édouard Manet was a French painter whose paintings depicted everyday life of the city people. He played a major role in the transition of Realism into Impressionism and was one of the first modern painters of the 19th century. Manet was born in a bourgeoisie Parisian household in 1832. After studying art for 6 years, he opened his own studio. His most famous work till date remains to be ‘The Luncheon on the Grass,’ which was finished and exhibited in 1863. Some of his other famous works include ‘Olympia’ (1865), ‘The Spanish Singer’ (1865), ‘Boating’ (1974), ‘The Grand Canal of Venice’ (1875), ‘House in Rueil’ (1882), and ‘Still Life, Lilac Bouquet’ (1883). Manet’s studio was partially destroyed during the siege of Paris but fortunately an art dealer bought everything for 50,000 francs. We have curated Manet’s quotes on art, color, lines, imagination, sound, belief, paint, men, vision, work, etc.
In a face, look for the main light and the main shadow; the rest will come naturally — it's often not important. And then you must cultivate your memory, because Nature will only provide you with references. Nature is like a warden in a lunatic asylum. It stops you from becoming banal.
