Edouard Manet

Edouard Manet was born in Paris on January 23, 1832. He was a French painter. He was a precursor of the famed impressionist period (late 19th to early 20th centuries). His art was openly rejected at first and it is only in the early 1870s that it was recognized as a new form. He and Monet became friends in 1874.
