The Piece of Art
Edouard Manet (1832-1883) is a French painter from the end of the 19th century. He was a precursor of modern painting, and questioned academic conventions. He wanted to present "modern life". In 1862, Manet presented an immense canvas: the Dejeuner sur l'herbe. The painting showed characters in a countryside setting: a naked woman surrounded by two dressed men. The piece was criticized by Manet's contemporaries; both the style and the subject were shocking. In this work Manet did not respect convention and imposed a new liberty. Emile Zola, writer and critic was the only one to defend Manet. This painting is now a key piece of Manet's work.

The Orsay Museum
The Orsay Museum is situated in Paris in the upstream left bank sector of the Seine. It is located in the former station built by Victor Laloux from 1898 to 1900, and was inaugurated on December 9, 1986. The transformation was done around the nave, which became the main axis of the museum, and round the monumental clock. The collections present western art history from 1848 to 1914 and all its diversity: paintings, sculpture, decorative arts, graphical arts, photography and architecture.
