Pubblicità

Édouard Manet è stato un pittore francese.

Manet non volle mai essere identificato col gruppo degli impressionisti, né partecipò mai alle loro esposizioni. Ciò perché, lungo tutta la sua carriera, egli preferì ottenere l'ammissione al Salon mediante un riconoscimento ufficiale dello Stato, e non «attraverso sotterfugi», come lui stesso affermò. Per questo si batté in difesa del principio della libertà espressiva dell'artista con opere che suscitarono scandalo presso i suoi contemporanei, come Colazione sull'erba e Olympia.

A partire dal 1869 si dedicò alla pittura en plein air e le sue uscite ai giardini delle Tuileries, sul retro del Louvre, divennero quasi degli appuntamenti mondani. Restò in attività fino al 1883, l'anno della sua morte. Manet raggiunse una grandissima fama e ancora oggi è considerato il più grande interprete della pittura pre-impressionista.

„How I miss you here [his friend in Paris - Manet visited Madrid and the famous museums there], and how delighted you would have been to see Velázquez, who in himself alone is worth the journey... He is the painter of painters. He did not astonish me, but delighted me.“

—  Edouard Manet

Quote 1865, recorded by Theodore Duret at the [[w:Salon (Paris)|Paris Salon that year; as quoted on: SCRIBD - 'Manet's letters' https://www.scribd.com/document/344176445/manets-letters-worksheet

„In art, conciseness is both a necessity and a luxury; a concise man provokes thought, a wordy man provokes boredom; always move towards conciseness. In the figure, look for the main light and the main shadow, the rest will come of itself: often, it amounts to very little.“

—  Edouard Manet
