Edouard Manet (1832�1883) was one of the most famous painters of the 19th century, while to this day Zacharie Astruc (1833�1907) remains virtually unknown as an artist: He initially made a name for himself as an art critic, and he was the first to publicly defend Manet’s works. Manet painted his portrait on several occasions, and his depiction of Zacharie Astruc from 1866 made a programmatic statement about the taste of the avantgarde. The image picks up on much the two artists loved � Japanese art, Spanish fashion, the paintings of the Old Masters, and music. Manet’s masterpieces are at the center of the major exhibition at Kunsthalle Bremen and its accompanying publication. Also examined here are the themes Manet and Astruc shared, whereby Manet’s paintings and Astruc’s sculptures and watercolors invite direct comparison. The artistic world in which they moved is evident in paintings by Henri Fantin-Latour, Claude Monet and Pierre-Auguste Renoir.
