In his defense. In a detailed discussion of a wide selection of Manet's paintings the tension between traditionalism and modernism emerges as a key feature of his work. Well trained in academic painting and strongly influenced by Velazquez, Goya and Hals, Manet's painting technique was based on the juxtaposition of light and dark blocks of color, using a restricted palette in which black was very important. In contrast to the impressionists, who were concerned with.
Transforming fleeting visual impressions of atmosphere and light into a web of shimmering colors, Manet's eye concentrates on the motif, on the figure in its individuality, the essence of which he was able to capture with a few adroit brushstrokes.
