Manet and the sea by Juliet Wilson-Bareau( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 645 libraries worldwide
"Manet and the Sea is the first book to highlight the French master's beautiful and varied seascapes. Essays by leading scholars discuss how Manet completely overturned established academic conventions of marine painting in France. His provocative approach was equal to that of his contemporary Gustave Courbet, and his bold and innovative techniques inspired many younger artists, including Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, James McNeill Whistler, and Pierre-Auguste Renoir. Essays on these and other artists place their seascapes in relation to Manet's pictures." "This illustrated and designed book presents more than one hundred paintings and drawings in full color. Anyone interested in the sea, maritime painting, nineteenth-century French painting, and particularly the role Manet played in the Impressionist revolution, will find this a book to own."--Jacket

Manet's silence and the poetics of bouquets by James Henry Rubin( Book )
6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 422 libraries worldwide
A sense of stillness and silence pervades Manet's painting. His flattened, sometimes fragmented forms appear to exist absentmindedly in a world removed from speech. It is this silence that James Rubin explores in a book that shows us Manet as we see him - naturally, in pictures that articulated their own purely visual terms. In such a sense, this book is about the restoration of the visual to its primacy in art through Manet's painting. While insisting that Manet's pictures must be given the first and final say in any interpretation, Rubin uses contradictory views of the painter's works - from the present and past - as a context for approaching them. Applying J.L. Austin's notion of the performative, which bridges the gap between language and action or between the painted image and its social effect, Rubin goes beyond past theorists to describe the curious ways in which Manet's paintings act upon us. With these ideas as his guide, he takes us through Manet's work, pointing out the elements that are distinctive and consistent, particularly the painter's reliance on a pattern of gazes and the "unique state of undecidability" that this strategy produces. Rubin also examines Manet's relationship to three of the leading critics of his day - Baudelaire, Zola, and Mallarme - giving special attention to Mallarme's appreciation, and eventual use in his own poetry, of the paradox between immersion and externality in Manet's oeuvre. Finally, the book uses the image of the bouquet to exemplify Manet's creative poetics through an exploration of his still life. Filled with revealing insights into Manet's achievement, this sensitive, informed, and clearly written book goes a long way toward explaining why Manet's paintings continue to fascinate and elude us more than one hundred years after the artist's death

Manet by Kathleen Adler( Book )
11 editions published in 1986 in 5 languages and held by 311 libraries worldwide
In his lifetime Édouard Manet (1832-83) insisted that his paintings were to be seen 'as a whole'. The major exhibitions of his work in Paris and New York in 1983 went some way towards achieving this aim, and the same intention lies behind Kathleen Adler's new monograph, for it is only when the paintings are juxtaposed that the artist's continuing preoccupations and explorations become apparent. There has been an upsurge of interest in Manet in recent years, and the recent scholarship which this has generated is duly appraised in Kathleen Adler's wide-ranging text. The major themes of Manet studies are fully discussed: his concern to express visually what Charles Baudelaire had termed 'the heroism of modern life'; his continual struggle for acceptance at the Paris Salons and his interest in other ways of exhibiting; his absorption and reinterpretation of the work of earlier artists; his experimentation with complex composition; and his attempts to engage the spectator as an active participant in his work. The views of critics of Manet's day and of our own are also considered and new propositions made for a better understanding of his intentions and of the measure of his success. The cleaning of many of the major paintings for the exhibitions was itself a major contribution to Manet studies, and the book's carefully selected colour plates allow readers to assess for themselves the tremendous impact paintings such as Olympia and A Bar at the Folies Bergére must have had on the visitors to the Paris Salons. They also demonstrate clearly why the artist's work continues to impress and challenge. -- Inside jacket flap
Manet and the American Civil War : the Battle of U.S.S. Kearsarge and C.S.S. Alabama by Juliet Wilson-Bareau( Book )
7 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 303 libraries worldwide
"On June 19, 1864, the United States warship Kearsarge sank the Confederate raider Alabama off the coast of Cherbourg, France, in one of the most celebrated naval engagements of the American Civil War. When Kearsarge later anchored off the French resort town of Boulogne-sur-Mer it was thronged by curious visitors, one of whom was the artist Edouard Manet. Although he did not witness the historic battle, Manet made a painting of it partly as an attempt to regain the respect of his colleagues after having been ridiculed for his works in the 1864 Salon. Manet's picture of the naval engagement and his portrait of the victorious Kearsarge belong to a group of his seascapes of Boulogne whose unorthodox perspective and composition would profoundly influence the course of French painting." "Manet's paintings and watercolors related to the battle are considered in depth alongside numerous prints, photographs, letters, and archival newspaper illustrations that illuminate the history of the episode and in some cases dispel lingering misconceptions. Manet's other Boulogne seascapes are also discussed in terms of their complex chronology and evolution. A final chapter touches on some of the sources for the seascapes - from Old Master paintings to Japanese woodblock prints - and traces the influence of the seascapes on such artists as Gustave Courbet, James Abbott McNeill Whistler, and Claude Monet."--BOOK JACKET

Manet : initial M, hand and eye by James Henry Rubin( Book )
5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 258 libraries worldwide
"An authoritative work on Edouard Manet, viewed by many as the father of modern painting. Few artists have created as much controversy as Manet: his avant-garde work not only challenged the traditions of art, but also addressed society as a whole. With his painting Olympia (1869), he was to become, to quote Degas, "as famous as Garibaldi." Yet how the diffident son of a bourgeois family became the father of both realism and impressionism is a complex story that has too often been overlooked. As Manet has rightly become recognized as a touchstone for historical change, his personal story has become all the more relevant to the study of art history."--Publisher description
