About the Designer
Edouard Manet (1832-1893) Although Edouard Manet led the transition from the realist to the impressionist style in painting, he steadfastly refused to label his own work as impressionist. His influence on French painting as well as the development of modern art is credited to his unfaltering portrayal of everyday subject matter. Manet is also associated with the use of broad, simple color areas with a vivid brush technique. Edouard Manet was born in Paris on January 23, 1832, the son of a high government official. Manet studied art in Paris with the academic French painter Thomas Couture. Manet also visited Germany, Italy and the Netherlands to study the old masters such as Frans Hals, DeigoVelazquez and Francisco Jose de Goya, all who would become principle influences on his art. In 1886, Manet befriended the French novelist Emile Zola, who had championed Manet s art in the newspaper Figaro. Soon the duo was joined by a young group of French impressionist painters that included Claude Monet, August Renior, Alfred Sisley, Camille Pisasarro and Paul Cezanne, all who claimed to have been influenced by Manet s art and in turn influenced Manet. Many Manet paintings did not gain recognition until late in the artist s life, when his portraits became much sought after. In 1882, one of his finest paintings, The Bar at the Folies-Bergere, received the prestigious art award the Legion of Honor--after being exhibited at the Salon. Edouard Manet died on April 30, 1883 leaving a vast collection of not only watercolors and pastels, but also 420 oil paintings.

brightens up a dark bathroom
Mary from Rocky Hill, CT– Verified Buyer
Nice quality picture for the price. Vibrant colors as illustrated and was shipped very quickly which is always a plus. I have it in my guest bathroom which has no natural light and neutral colors so it needed something to brighten it up and this does the trick. Plus it allows for any number of color combinations so I can change things up (shower curtain, towels etc) easily if I want to..
very bringt and changes the look for the wall

I bought it for our living room wall. I like it. Its bright and changes the look of the wall. On top of it my two year old son looks at it often and checks out the "fish" in the painting.
Exactly what I expected

Susan from crestwood, IL– Verified Buyer
This artwork is every bit as vibrant on the wall as it looked on the website. Disappointed that hardware for hanging was not included.
Nancy from Oakdale, MN– Verified Buyer
The picture as shown on your site looked great but wait until you see in person. The colors are bold and saturated. The price made this purchase extra special. Love it!!!!

This is fine, but...
C. from GA– Verified Buyer
This picture arrived fine and was just fine in and of itself, but I'm really not okay with getting phone calls from this site.

This canvas is stunning. Colors are so rich they seem to pop right off the canvas itself. I bought all of the others in this series and couldn't be happier with how they look on my white walls. Such a great addition to my contemporary home.
