Manet's paintings created violent controversy during his lifetime. The reaction of the public, of journalists, and of professional critics to the paintings that were exhibited attest to the critical tempest that he aroused.
This book by George Heard Hamilton is a richly documented study of Manet criticism and what it reveals of the relationship of the artist to society. Hamilton draws on contemporary newspapers, periodicals, letters, and critical essays to show the evolution of Manet's style in the context of his time, his struggle to have his work accepted, and the history of both the abuse and praise he received. In so doing,Hamilton makes it possible not only to understand the relation of Manet's art and its principles to the contemporary practices of nineteenth-century French art but also to appreciate the difficulties that artists continue to experience in presenting a new point of view or technique to a public accustomed to other procedures.
