Monsieur and Madame Manet by Edouard Manet

Monsieur and Madame Manet by Edouard Manet

The painting, painted in 1860, depicts the parents of Edward Mans himself. In the grocery shop of his father, where he spent his childhood, often exhibited and successfully sold the first drawings of the beginning artist.

The stiffness of the mother helping the father in the shop and the strict appearance of Mane Sr. are well expressed in the artist’s picture, and they create the contrast, so beloved by him, combined with bright ribbons in the mother’s basket.
