Additional Information

One of the most celebrated artists of the nineteenth century, Manet's rejection of academic realism marked a pivotal point in the development of Impressionism. In this engraving, Manet celebrates another avant-garde artist of the era-the symbolist poet Charles Baudelaire, whose intense, expressive investigations of contemporary life broke from established tradition, much like Manet's art.
