Selected Profiles of the most famous Great Painters of Modern Art (mid XIX to end XX C)

  • Édouard Manet (1832 – 1883) was a French painter. One of the first 19th-century artists to approach modern-life subjects, he was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe), 1863, and Olympia, 1863, engendered great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, they are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art.
