Édouard Manet is a French artist born in the year of 1832, in the prominent French capital, Paris. Child of Eugénie-Desirée Fournier, with Auguste Manet, influential judge, and grandchild of the Prince Charles Bernadotte, from Sweden, he always showed interest in pursuing a career in arts, despise his parents’ intentions. With the support of his uncle, Edmond Fournier, Manet started to study from the old masters, replicating the paintings displayed in the Louvre museum, and attending classes there and later, joined Thomas Couture’s studio to learn from the master.
After his father’s death, in 1862, Édouard married Suzanne Leenhoff, with whom he had a not recognized child years before, while she was his piano teacher. Their child, Leon, posed for multiple works of art. Manet’s career was influenced by some of the most brilliant artists of the late XIX century, like Berthe Morisot, Diego Velázquez, Claude Monet, Frans Hals, and Francisco José de Goya.
Struggling to settle in the city, Manet’s bad humor can be seen reflected in The Grand Canal, Venice I in his brushstrokes in the waters, giving the feeling of agitation. Being influenced by the young Claude Monet, with whom he passed the summer in the city of Seine with and who later was called by him as Raphael of Water, Édouard painted 37 scenes depicting the Venetian canals.
This work was painted with a unique style and is an example of the Impressionist art the artist delved in. Édouard Manet painted this masterpiece in the autumn of 1875, in Venice, Italy. He traveled to the city of the canals with his wife, Suzanne Leenhoff, and his friend James Tissot, also a talented painter. A popular place among the Impressionist artists, Venice was depicted multiple times by Manet.
Manet was focused mostly on capturing the lights on the water, not giving too much attention to the background. With his impressive technique and personal style, he used his customary broad strokes to depict the movement that the boat was causing in the canal.
The blue pigment used by the artist to represent the water, the poles, the boatman, and some details in the background contrasts well with the use of black tonalities, one of his trademarks. This magnificent work of art is currently housed in the Shelburne Museum, located in Vermont, United States.
