Edouard Manet

<p>Edouard Manet was a 19th-century French modernist painter. His brave and unorthodox approach influenced the Impressionists and secured his legacy for generations to come. The Edouard Manet wall art collection is your chance to celebrate this iconic artist within your home.<p> <p class="title-3">Characteristics of Edouard Manet Wall Art</p> <p>Edouard Manet (1832-1883) was born into a wealthy Parisian family. His early work found favor in the Salon, but as his style grew and evolved, he was rejected from the mainstream. Indeed, Manet&#39;s work was about challenging conventions and going against the grain, which is seen in his atypical approach to painting.<p> <p>Manet is perhaps best remembered for bridging the transition from Realism to Impressionism. He was bold and creative and sought to breathe new life into older genres by adding new techniques and notions. Some of the ways that Manet bucked convention include his loose and broad brushwork and his use of the alla prima process that involved painting on top of wet, rather than dried, paint.<p> <p>The subject matter of Manet&#39;s work includes scenes of outdoor life, portraits, flowers, and the sea. However, it is arguably his depictions of Parisian life that remain most relevant today. Manet&#39;s realism creates a faithful record of the ordinary and everyday without the varnish of romanticism, while his Impressionist works invoke us to think about the interior life of his subjects.<p> <p>Manet&#39;s use of light and shadow alongside a diverse color palette that included, at the time, unconventional black gives his work an interesting feeling and texture, especially when viewed against his relatively flat use of depth and perspective.<p> <p class="title-3">How to choose Edouard Manet art for your space</p> <p>While Edouard Manet art is emblematic of 19th-century life, it represents an important shift in what art could be. His work was at times political and even shocking, which gives it a vitality even from our modern vantage point.<p> <p>There is enough variety in Manet&#39;s work to find a piece that speaks to both your personal taste and decor style. If you have a space with natural hues, one of Manet&#39;s more vibrant works can inject a sense of color and excitement.<p> <p>Impressionist paintings work well within a variety of decor styles.
