Berthe Morisot, 1884
Manet was a painter and printmaker. Once classified as an Impressionist, he has subsequently been regarded as a realist who influenced and was influenced by the Impressionist painters of the 1870s, though he never exhibited with them or fully adopted their ideas and procedures. His style is noble for its brilliant painterly technique, in both paintings and prints.
