Édouard Manet

Kindle (US version), Kindle, ePub (US version), ePub

The French painter Édouard Manet, often associated with the Impressionists, broke new ground by defying traditional techniques of representation and by choosing contemporary subjects of Parisian life. His ‘Déjeuner sur l’herbe’ and ‘Olympia’ sparked public outcries, while inspiring a new generation of artists to embark on a new focus on modern, urban subjects, winning for Manet a pivotal place in the history of modern art. Delphi’s Masters of Art Series presents the world’s first digital e-Art books, allowing readers to explore the works of great artists in comprehensive detail. This volume presents Manet’s complete paintings in beautiful detail, with concise introductions, hundreds of high quality images and the usual Delphi bonus material. (Version 1)
