Édouard Manet ( US pron.: / m æ ˈ n eɪ / or UK / ˈ m æ n eɪ / ; French: [edwaʁ manɛ] ; 23 January 1832 – 30 April 1883) was a French painter. One of the first 19th-century artists to approach modern and postmodern-life subjects, he was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism . His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe) and Olympia , engendered great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, these are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art . [ edit ] Biography Born into an upper class household with strong political connections, Manet rejected the future originally envisioned for him, and became engrossed in the world of painting.
