Born in 1832 in the astonishing Paris, Édouard Manet is the painter that inspired the beginning of Impressionism. His father, Auguste Manet, was a reputable judge, and his mother had noble heritage. His parents discouraged his interest in art at first, but with time, they realized the potential that the young Manet had and supported his career.
Supported by his uncle, Edmond Fournier, Manet started to frequent and study at the Louvre, where he practiced replicating the paintings of the old masters. In 1853, he traveled to Germany, Italy, and Holand, where he was exposed to the talent of some of the most notable artists, being influenced mostly by Diego Velazquez, Frans Hals, and Francisco José de Goya.
After six years studying with Thomas Couture, Édouard opened his own studio. Using a broad brushstroke, the artist created his own style by painting in a looser and Impressionistic fashion. His favorite subject was depicting normal people in everyday activities, which startled some and impressed many others.
The artist was invited multiple times to display his art in Impressionist exhibitions, but he always turned them down. He always preferred the salons, and like most of his paintings, the master Édouard Manet was a contradiction, both common and bourgeoisie, radical and traditional.
The bar at the Folies-Bergère was painted in 1882 and is considered to be one of his last greatest works. This magnificent oil painting was exhibited at the Paris Salon and is one of the most impressive Cafe Scenes that Edouard has ever painted. Emmanuel Chabrier, a famous composer and personal friend of Manet, has acquired this painting, and it was one of the fourteen masterpieces he had at the time.
Portraying a detailed scene of the nineteenth century, this painting exemplifies Manet's commitment to Realism. The central character is Suzon, a real person who worked at the Folies-Bergère in 1880. With the addition of the oranges, the artist identifies the barmaid as a prostitute. According to the art historian Larry Ligo, Manet added the fruits to represent the prostitutes for which the nightclub was well-known.
The background was painted with rich details on two levels of the crowded Cafe. With the characters drawn using sophisticated clothes, Édouard Manet depicts the mixture of social classes that used to frequent this club, describing an everyday life situation, one of the trademarks of his style.
