Product Description

Published in conjunction with the major exhibition Manet: Portraying Life (October 7, 2012–January 1, 2013 at the Toledo Museum of Art), this remarkable book explores Manet's portraiture, a significant yet often neglected aspect of his work. Leading authorities provide a thorough review of the artist's stylistic evolution, considering the influence of 17th-century Dutch painters, parallels with the work of Renoir, and links with early photography. Lavishly illustrated with paintings, works on paper, and photographs of models and sitters, this landmark study throws new light on the quintessential painter of modernity.

Manet: Portraying Life opens to the public October 7, 2012
