Manet’s Advertisement An understanding of Vue de l’Exposition Universel

An understanding of Vue de l comment Universelle, Paris 1867Manet a toujours reconnu le talent l o il se trouve et na prtendu ni renverser une ancienne peinture ni en crer une nouvelle. Il a cherch simplement tre lui-mme et non un autre.Edouard Manet, Motifs dune exposition particulire, may 1867 (in Courthion 139) Manet is a transitional painter, emerging from the realism of the early to mid nineteenth century and a precursor to included in by rough authors the impressionist movement. The publics fascination with his work is remarkable. But, as much as his work is appreciated today, he has been criticized and misunderstood by his contemporaries. His cornerstone explorations in composition and representation made him an easy target for hostile critics. He has been accused of leaving his paintings unfinished, of not being able to compose, of drop of imagination and even of vulgarity (Hanson, Howard, Mainardi, others). His position as part of the kinship group of eccentrics (C hesneau q. in Mainardi 109) has kept Manet out of the conservative catalog of the Fine humanities section of the Exposition Universelle of 1867 in Paris. Since, in the artists words, montrer est la question vitale, le sine qua non pour lartiste (in Courthion 140), he was hale to prepare his own show to display his work to the very fundamental public brought to Paris by the world fair. So, he and Courbet borrowed money and put up on the Place de lAlma, right on the highway leading from the Salon at the Place de lIndustrie to the Exposition Universelle on the Champ de Mars (Mainardi 109). It is in this ambiance of optimistic defiance that Manet produced Vue de lExposition Universelle, Paris 1867 , his illustration of the fair. ... ...er Levin Associates, 1988 Hanson, Anne Coffin.
