Madame Manet on a Blue Sofa: Edouard Manet

Edouard Manet: Madame Manet on a Blue Sofa

Here we have Madame Manet on a Blue Sofa with an active and perhaps even impatient gaze, she looks out at the painter, Edouard Manet and the viewer. This together with the gloved hand crooked in her hip draw attention to the act of waiting – whether it be the sitter awaiting the artist, the artist awaiting an idea or the spectator look into the artwork. Manet painted this in 1880.

Edouard Manet’s Madame Manet on a Blue Sofa is in the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.
