Edouard Manet is widely considered the father of modern Impressionism. I can remember as an impressionable (forgive the pun) 16 year old being blown away by the beauty and simplicity of his paintings, so now, I hope to relight my passion for Manet with a new exhibition at the Royal Academy .... looking forward to it.

What do you think? ... you can see more at

Phil , we had much of his work here over the years , in 2004/05 we were lucky enough to have an Impressionist exhibition here in Melb, centered round "The Balcony" ... one of my mates was instrumental in its shipping here and back ...

It was much ado about nothing for me , until I stood directly in front of it .

Wonderful

Saw some of his work in Amsterdam, I wish they would let people camp out in galleries! Would be really cool to wake up and be blown away from the moment you open your eyes ��

Ben ... I think that's the key statemant right there. Art of any type takes on a different persona when your in front of it and seeing the actual object face to face.

Good. Hopefully you got to the 3rd page, that's when it becomes most related to art. I had a little text on info. theory before that spent the last chapter postulating how information theory influences tastes in visual and auditory art. It's mostly untestable speculation but interesting.
