Edouard Manet The Fifre Player Metal Bookmark
Artists often influence other artists. This was the case with Edouard Manet when he saw first saw Velazquez' work on a visit to the Prado in 1866. With his flat background and vivid brushwork, Velazquez was a revelation.
Back in Paris, Manet began work on a new painting: of an anonymous regimental fifer in the Spanish army. The painting was rejected by the jury of the Salon of 1866. But a year later, Manet funded an exhibition of his own work; and art history changed forever.
