About Eugene Manet

The artwork titled “Eugene Manet” was painted by Edgar Degas in the year 1874. Executed in oil on canvas, this piece is attributed to the Impressionism movement. It is a portrait that measures 65 by 86 centimeters in size. Currently, the artwork belongs to a private collection.

The portrait depicts a solitary figure, Eugene Manet, seated on the ground in a vast landscape. Manet, dressed in a dark suit and sporting a full beard, is posed in a relaxed, reclining position with his legs stretched out in front of him. He wears a hat, and his hands rest casually in his lap. The field behind him features rolling hills with hints of greenery and clusters of buildings in the distance under a subdued sky. The brushwork is loose, showcasing the characteristic Impressionism technique where form and light are suggested rather than strictly defined. The composition conveys a sense of informal immediacy and the experience of the natural environment, aligning with the objectives of Impressionist painters of that era.
