Description: Manet and the Family Romance
~I KNOW I AM NOT the only writer on Manet who felt she almost inhabited the paintings, or who started investigating Manet’s art out of a sense of personal necessity. These essays have their origins in a seminar paper I undertook with the guidance and encouragement of Timothy J. Clark. I would like to attribute most of their strengths and none of their...

ÉDOUARD MANET GREW up on the rue des Petits-Augustins (now the rue Bonaparte), more or less across the street from the Ecole des Beaux-Arts he never attended. The address was a short walk down the quay and across the bridge from the Palais de Justice where Manet’s father worked; indeed, many judges and magistrates lived nearby. As a family of a certain social standing,...

Description: Manet and the Family Romance
~MY ATTEMPT TO RECONSTRUCT some nineteenth-century familial myths around Manet’s art is, at some level, aimed at rescuing an essential feature of Manet’s art from the literalness of a certain brand of art history that concerns itself only with Manet’s subjects and motifs in a material sense. It is, in part, a reminder that the social history of...
