Abstract:

There are some great painters whose influence is confined to the world of painting. Others, who through their art are effectively moral critics, challenge the society in which they live. Manet was one of these. Rejecting the traditional "histories" and "mythologies" that won official acclaim, he turned instead to the life of his own time.

Yet he did not ally himself with the other painters of contemporary life, the Impressionists, preferring to engage with a Realist tradition, and at the same time drawing on the art of the past - Raphael, Titian, Velazquez, Goya - to confront his own age. In this freshly researched study Alan Krell examines the artist's known intentions and the critical, sometimes bitterly hostile reception that he encountered.

He compares Manet to Impressionists like Monet, Degas and Morisot, and shows how the artist's progressive social views - on sexuality, on the position of women, on the family - were expressed through a style equally "modern," yet rooted in the European artistic tradition.
