Edouard Manet The Fifre Player Metal Bookmark
This product is currently sold out.
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 backgrounds and vivid brush work, 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.
