      Édouard Manet – Portrait of Émile Zola (1868) oil on canvas Paris, Musée d'Orsay

    • Alex Faullix

      Emile Zola (1868). Edouard Manet (1832-1883). Oil on canvas. Musée d’Orsay. In 1866, Zola wrote an article on Manet in La Revue du XXe Siècle and defended him when he organised a private exhibition. Zola regarded the artist, who was contested by traditionalists, as one of the masters of the future, whose place was in the Louvre. To thank him, Manet offered to paint Zola’s portrait. The setting was arranged with items characteristic of Zola’s personality, tastes and occupation.

      Edouard Manet, Portrait of Emile Zola Painted in 1868 in a palette reminiscent of his scandalous Luncheon on the Grass, this very formal portrait of Émile Zola, the rising novelist and tireless defender and of The Impressionists, represents the writer a year after the publication of his first novel Thérèse Raquin. The book was a commercial and artistic, although not a critical success for Zola.

      Hanging today in an old railway station which the French have wondrously converted into an art museum called the Musee d' Orsay, is a fairly large portrait linking two men who, one might say, had some modest impact on nineteenth century art in their country. The portrait is of Emile Zola, a writer and art critic of no small influence in his time. The portrait was painted by the even more influential Edouard Manet in 1868.
