|Edouard Manet Brief Biography|
Édouard Manet (January 23, 1832 – April 30, 1883) was a French painter. One of the first 19th century artists to approach modern-life subjects, his art bridged the gap between Realism and Impressionism.
From 1850 to 1856, after failing the examination to join the navy, Manet studied under academic painter Thomas Couture. In his spare time he copied the old masters in the Louvre. He visited Germany, Italy and the Netherlands, during which time he absorbed the influences of the Dutch painter Frans Hals, and the Spanish artists Diego Velázquez and Francisco José de Goya.
Manet, in imitation of the then current style of realism initiated by Gustave Courbet, painted everyday subjects like beggars, cafés, bullfights, and other events and scenery. He produced very few religious, mythological, or historical paintings. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89douard_Manet
About the painting, 'Battle of the Kearsarge and the Alabama' (1864)
The roughly painted style and photographic lighting in these works was seen as specifically modern, and as a challenge to the Renaissance works Manet updated. His work is considered early modern because of its black outlining of figures that draws attention to the surface of the picture plane and the materiality of paint.
Unlike the core impressionist group, Manet consistently believed that modern artists should seek to exhibit at the Paris Salon rather than abandon it. Though his own work influenced and anticipated the impressionist style, he resisted involvement in impressionist exhibitions, partly because he did not wish to be seen as the representative of a group identity, and partly because of his disapproval of their opposition to the salon system. Nevertheless, when Manet was excluded from the International exhibition of 1867, he set up his own exhibition. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%89douard_Manet

YOUR SHOP KEEPER: KARENE
My partner (philosopher Geoff Haselhurst) and I are building a large
philosophy website which is the source (and inspiration) for most of
the Philosophy images and quotes in this shop.
Below are some of our favourite philosophers / quotes and links to relevant
pages of our website. Philosophy (which is ultimately about Wisdom from
Truth and Reality) is important to our world (all proceeds from this
shop are used to promote our work on Philosophy).
Thus we also hope that you find our philosophy website interesting!
Cheers, Karene. (August, 2010)
