The Grand Canal of Venice: Edouard Manet

The Grand Canal of Venice: Edouard Manet

The Grand Canal of Venice, also known as Blue Venice, shows as part of Edouard Manet’s transition from a precise style to a more Impressionist one. Painted in 1875, the brushwork is loose as everything other than the gondola seems to shine with immaterial light effects. The black of the gondola was a rare color in Impressionism.

Edouard Manet’s The Grand Canal of Venice is in the Shelburne Museum in Vermont, United States
