Description

By Gary Tinterow, 2003. Produced in conjunction with the exhibition

Manet/Velzquez: The French Taste for Spanish Painting at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, March 4June 29, 2003.

This catalogue accompanies the Museum's exhibition that traces the shift in nineteenth-century French taste away from Italian Renaissance idealism to the Baroque realism of Spain's Golden Age. At the core of the exhibit lies the "Spanish" work of douard Manet (French, 18321883), whose career thoroughly reveals the importance of Spanish painting at mid-century. A darker palette and the quick, incisive, and allusive manner of painting that Manet borrowed from Diego Velzquez (Spanish, 15991660) helped free French artists from the polished technique they had inherited from the Neoclassical painters. The catalogue also offers an investigation of the profound influence that the works of Spanish masters like Velzquez, El Greco, Zurbarn, and Goya, had on major American artists as James McNeill Whistler, Thomas Eakins, Mary Cassatt, and John Singer Sargent. Detailed descriptions survey the impact of a cultural phenomenon that was remarked upon by all perceptive writers and artists but was entirely unexpected.

608 pages, 729 illustrations (380 in full color). 9'' x 12''. Hardcover or Paper.
