Major French painter and engraver of the late 19th century. A precursor of modern painting, which he freed from academism, Édouard Manet is wrongly considered to be one of the fathers of Impressionism: he differs from it in that he is concerned about reality and makes little or no use of the new techniques of colour and the particular treatment of light.
