Édouard Manet: Carolus-Duran

Portrait of Édouard Manet: Carolus-Duran

Carolus-Duran paints a portrait of Édouard Manet, his friend, and fellow artist, in 1880 in a loose style, especially the background and details such as Manet’s beard and cravat.

Duran was an influential artist and mentor in Third Republic France. The style is atypical of the artist and would seem to approach that of the art of his sitter as a further tribute.

Carolus-Duran’s Portrait of Édouard Manet’s is in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, France.
