Édouard Manet, a brilliant artist born in Paris, France, is one of the painters that has ignited the fires of the Impressionism. Found in his uncle, Edmond Fournier, the support that he needed to start his career. His parents, August Manet and Eugénie-Desirée Fournier wanted something more stable and sober for his child, and they suggested law.
The painter opened his studio in 1850 and produced more than 400 paintings in his career. Mixing his personal techniques with his learnings from the old masters, Édouard was considered key in the switch-over from Realism to Impressionism. With a preference for the reduction of transitional tones and the reduction of details, he faced acid critics and until he was finally seen as the creative genius that he is.
Inspired by artists like Caravaggio, Diego Velazquez, and Rembrandt, Manet was considered a controversial artist since his first years of career. Adept to the use of light and black tones, his time as apprentice to the master Thomas Couture was abbreviated for the lack of acknowledgment for his talent. His most celebrated masterpieces are the Olympia, Music in the Tuileries, and Luncheon on the Grass.
The Salon des Refusés was created, in 1863, because of the critics from artists that had their paintings refused at the Paris Salon, including Édouard Manet. In the first edition of this salon, he decided to display the Déjeuner sur l'herbe, a controversial painting that displayed a nude woman on a picnic, accompanied by two fully dressed males. The exhibition of this canvas raised debate and notoriety, with his new ideas and Impressionist approach.
Using a dark background and a dog, a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, sitting in a red pillow with his toy, Manet painted this oil canvas in 1866. With captivating big eyes and white and brown colors, Édouard used very tight brushwork on the dog’s face, trying to pass the expression and his feelings. In the animal trunk, it is noticeable the loser brushstrokes, describing the silky fur that is one of his most captivating characteristics.
Made in his peculiar style, this masterpiece’s first owner was Maurice Leclanché, by 1902 until 1910. After this short period, it was sold to the doctor Julius Elias, staying with his family until the second world war, in Berlin. From there, the canvas was housed in Norway, England and is currently housed in Washington D.C., at the National Gallery of Art.
