As a complex and contradictory character who suffered from syphilis and had an illegitimate Manet Rebel in a Frock ePUB #192 son. Reviewing this book is problematic It is well written and Brombert s research seems grounded but I had a lot of trouble finishing it Brombert deftly blends fine details about Parisian history culture and politics but it s almost too much to take in The high points of this tome were the discussions of Manet s works themselves She clearly outlines his historical sources and symbolism for example explaining that Gare Saint Lazare 1873 is a continuation of Velasuez s exploration of mirrored space Las Meninas In Gare Saint Lazare Manet mirrors the complexities of the mind Painted around the time the artist turned 40 its theme is the passing of time and transit nature of life smoke symbolizing the passing of time the puppy symbolizing infancy the child representing childhood and Victorine the famous courtesan and model of Olympia now captured about to turn thirty representing adulthood I would recommend this book to someone wanting to gain a breadth of knowledge on this artist but I found Ross King s The Judgment of Paris to be a much enjoyable read
