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.
Le portrait d'Émile Zola (mon auteur français préféré...) réalisé en 1868 par le peintre Édouard Manet, désireux de manifester sa reconnaissance à Émile Zola pour le soutien actif qu'il manifestait alors à son art.
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.
