Édouard Manet

Maler, 1832-1883

"Manet gilt als einer der Wegbereiter der modernen Malerei. Auf junge Künstler hatte Manet einen großen Einfluss, obwohl er offiziell meist nur Ablehnung erfuhr. Den jungen Künstlern des Impressionismus war Manet freundschaftlich verbunden, betrachtete sich aber selbst dieser Stilrichtung nie zugehörig. Grafiken, Landschaften, Porträts und Stilleben komplettieren sein Werk. 2010 erzielte eines seiner beiden Selbstporträts (""Selbstporträt mit Palette"") bei einer Versteigerung im Londoner Auktionshaus Sotheby’s einen Preis von 22,4 Millionen Britische Pfund, der bislang höchste je für ein Gemälde Manets gezahlte Preis."

Beautiful bust portrait of the French modernist painter dedicated to Éva Gonzalès. The three quarters photography on card is raised like a cameo relief. The photo was taken by Ferdinand Mulnier (1817-1891), and the card shows the photographer's mark and address (25, Boulevard des Italiens) on the back. On the back it is dedicated: "Miss Eva | E. Manet". Éva Gonzalès (1849-1883) entered Manet's studio in 1869, when she became his student. Eva's presence brought Manet out of his shell. Manet is said to have begun a portrait of her at once, which was completed in March 1870 and exhibited as Mlle E.G, at the Paris Salon the same year.

Manet’s work received critics as Mlle E.G. is presented in a stiff posture and an expensive dress, clearly unfit for creating artwork. Gonzalès was Manet’s only formal student and modeled for several other painters of the Impressionist school. Her work as a painter was celebrated by Salon reviewers for her inherent intuition and her intrinsic technical skill. In 1879 she married Henri Guérard, a graphic artist and Manet’s engraver..
