Born in Paris in 1832, French painter Edouard Manet was one of the first 19th century artists to move from Realism towards Impressionism, depicting everyday scenes of people and city life.
Early paintings Le Déjeuner sur l'Herbe and Olympia, are regarded as his most significant works, marking the genesis of modern art. In each, female nudes stare directly at the viewer which was at once shocking and groundbreaking.
This collection of faithfully reproduced prints and posters offer the full breadth of of Manets vision, ranging from his best loved to little known works.

This is, in my view, the best of Manet's portraits. It is exquisite! Berthe Morisot was a splendid choice as a model, being herself one of the best of the Impressionist painters as well as a very attractive woman. The portrait shows her strength of will as well as her humanity. The product is of exceptional quality for its price (In fact, it was no more expensive than a kit I bought from an entirely different producer to mount one of my own watercolours myself). There is excellent workmanship in the mounting and framing of the Manet portrait of Berthe Morisot at a highly competitive price. I would most certainly recommend the producers of this product and would use them again for mounting prints.
