Edouard Manet - Luncheon on the Grass
Edouard Manet - Luncheon on the Grass
.
Exhibited with other impressionist paintings at the Salon des Refuses by Manet in 1863, this painting earned the impressionists a great deal of media attention. Whilst a nude in a classical setting was considered acceptable, one in a contemporary setting was not. Luncheon on the Grass caused a public scandal and was savaged by the critics.
