EDOUARD MANET: THE LUNCHEON ON THE GRASS
When I think of Edouard Manet, the first painting that comes to my mind is The Luncheon on the grass, the first painting which distances itself from academic painting, and which marks the beginning of the artistic career of the master of the Impressionists.
In this post I’ll tell you why The Luncheon on the grass is an important work.

I must confess that I’m not always pleased with it, but there are some very special places.
I’ve already published a list of the 8 best restaurants inside a museum, but I have treasured your suggestions and I must add 5 restaurants you tried out to that list (and I went to one of these restaurants after you recommended to me!)
Here is the list of the world’s best restaurants inside a museum.

One of the most fascinating events in the European painting is the birth and development of Vedutismo (cityscape painting) in the 18th century, of which the Venetian painter Giovanni Antonio Canal, known as Canaletto, was the main proponent.
His vedute (views) of Venice and London, as well were sought-after mainly by Anglo-Saxon collectors, who loved urban landscapes, and found in Canaletto’s works detailed and realistic images of what they could see and live in the 18th-century cities.
