The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe), 1863 Olympia, 1863 A Bar at the Folies-Bergère (Le Bar aux Folies-Bergère), 1882

Édouard Manet (French pronunciation: ; 23 January 1832 – 30 April 1883) was a French painter. One of the first 19th-century artists to approach modern-life subjects, he was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism.

His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe) and Olympia, engendered great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, these are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art.
