Edouard Manet canvas prints information
Unlike some of his contemporaries, this artist actually grew up in a wealthy family in Paris where he was on January 23, 1832. His father wanted Edouard to become a lawyer, but he had no interest in the law and only wanted to work at being an artist! When he turned eighteen, Manet began to study art under the teaching of painter Thomas Couture. Over the next few years he also traveled to places like Florence, Rome, the Netherlands and Germany to study classical works of art, which is a massive influence on his style as you will see in these Edouard Manet canvas prints. His legitimate painting career started in the style of realism. He wanted to be so accepted by the Salon, which was the official art exhibition of France, that he submitted "The Absinthe Drinker" and later on "The Luncheon on the Grass" even though he was rejected. These paintings were very different from what the conservative critics of the Salon expected from artists as they were not grand scenes of historical importance, but an everyday situation of ordinary people, which you will see in some of Edouard Manet canvas prints.
