Art, History, Modern (late 19th Century to 1945)

 The French painter Edouard Manet, often associated with the Impressionists, broke new ground by defying traditional techniques of representation and by choosing contemporary subjects of Parisian life. His ‘Dejeuner sur l’herbe’ and ‘Olympia’ sparked public outcries, while inspiring a new generation of artists to embark on a new focus on modern, urban subjects, winning for Manet a pivotal place in the history of modern art.
