Le Bon Bock, also known as A Good Glass of Beer, is a portrait painting by Edouard Manet. In it, we can see an older man with joyous red cheeks smoking a pipe and holding a big glass of beer in his right hand. Manet achieved fame through his depiction of urban Parisian scenes and for his impressive portraits. Some of his other portraits are Berthe Morisot Holding a Bunch of Violets, Portrait of Emile Zola and Portrait of Victorine Meurent.
This oil on canvas measures 94.0 x 83.0 cm, and it was first exhibited in the Paris Salon of 1873. Émile Bellot was the model for the picture and was a printmaker. The painting was done in a very reminiscent way of Frans Hals's work, a Dutch Baroque master. The picture's background was painted with an intense black, and the artwork deploys a very restricted palette, using mostly blacks, greys, and whites for the clothes, while the face has a warm red hue. It shows the preciseness of Manet's brush, capable of working with blotches of paint and still achieve a very vivid portrait.
The French painter had a trailblazing spirit in his art, becoming one of the fundamental figures of Modern art. Although his family wasn't close to the art world, he was capable of convincing his parents to enter the classes of a celebrated local painter, Thomas Couture. After six years and some strong disagreements with Couture, Manet left and opened his atelier with a friend. Soon, he had the support of different but influential figures; some of them became close friends: Eugene Delacroix, Émile Zola, Stéphane Mallarmé, and Charles Baudelaire.
In the first half of the 1860s, Manet created some of his most famous and controversial works. After creating artworks inspired by Goya and Velázquez and painting a few religious pieces from 1859-1861, in 1862, the French painter came into his now-famous manner. During that year, he painted Music In The Tuileries Gardens, Le Dejeuner Sur L'HerbeL'Herbe (The Picnic), and in 1863, Olympia, a painting that deals consciously with the tradition of nude females and draws from painters such as Titian. All three works were part of the Salon des Refusés and had very polarized receptions. During the 1870s, Manet was at the height of his career, having a following of other Modern painters, a circle that became known as the Batignolles painters.
