Edouard Manet
Birth: Jan. 23, 1832
Death: Apr. 30, 1883

Impressionist Painter. He is considered to be the senior figure among the artists of the Impressionist School. He studied the works of Dutch artist Frans Hals in Holland in 1872. Hals taught him to liberate his brushstrokes when creating and to paint with more energy and verve. These techniques provided a basis for Manet to become one of the founders of the Impressionist Movement. One of his most significant works is "Luncheon on the Grass". This piece provoked and offended the critics of the time who claimed it was pornographic and immoral. The Salon, one of the most influential galleries in Paris at the time, refused to exhibit the work, but it proved to be one of the works of art in the "Salon des Refuges", a gallery whose specific reason for existence was to display the rejected works of leading artists. (bio by: Jelena)
