Reviews - What do customers think about Edouard Manet, 1832-1883: The First of the Moderns (Taschen Basic Art)?
Excellent Value Jul 11, 2006
This great little book has all of Manet's paintings in it. If the text discusses it, then the picture is in there. It includes enlargements of selected areas of critical paintings and even includes paintings by others if a comparsion is made. The scholarship is excellent including placing Manet in context, except for mistaking the American Revolution for the Civil War. For $10, one cannot beat this book. Highly recommended, I couldn't put it down.
