Manet's Contemplation at the Gare Saint-Lazare

Manet's Contemplation at the Gare Saint-Lazare

Book - 1987
Rate this:
The art of Edouard Manet has been called upon to support various, mostly conflicting, theories about nineteenth-century art, modernist painting, Realism, the personality and intentions of the artist, and the development of Impressionism. Manet was an exceedingly private man and left scant record of his ideas and ambitions. Harry Rand's consideration of Manet's friendship with St#65533;phane Mallarm#65533; illuminates their shared aesthetic, and his close examination of the pictorial organization of a particular painting, the Gare Saint-Lazare (also known as The Railway ), yields unmistakable clues to Manet's thoughts about painting, literature, and society.
