Edward Manet “Olympia” 1868 Paris In a radical departure from the norm, Manet launched into the bare canvas with no preparatory studies, in large rough brushstrokes he built up the luminous nakedness of the model with half tones eliminated...the canvas is vast dominating the space, spooning the elixir of the flesh to the client - unseen and unknown - did he bring the bouquet? But Manet brings us a direct gaze, a confrontational glare...she retains her identity - she holds herself against the transaction perhaps about to take place within the confines of her boudoir. No one could say it better than the goddess that is Margaret Atwood so I will relay her words on the painting: But consider the body, in fragile, defiant the pale nipples staring you right in the bulls-eye. There’s someone else in this room you monsieur voyeur as for that object of yours she’s seen before and better. I am the head am the only subject of this picture. You sir are furniture. #manet #olympia #malegaze #manetolympia #manetpainting ...

Edouard Manet, Nana - L’ispirazione di questo celebre dipinto è il romanzo di Zola “L’ammazzatoio” (L’Assomnoir) in cui compare la giovane Nana, che per non vivere un’esistenza di stenti come la madre, sceglie di fare la prostituta. La Nana di Manet è ritratta davanti ad uno specchio mentre si fa bella. Il suo viso si volta verso lo spettatore al quale dedica un sorriso.
L’opera, esposta presso il mercante di quadri Giroux, ha subito ricevuto un accoglienza critica ed indignata. Tra i pochi sostenitori di quello che sarà in seguito riconosciuto come uno dei capolavori di Manet ci fu Joris-Karl Huysmans.
