Focillon Describes
Paintings Of Manet
(Continued from Page 1)
exemplary beginnings his own bril-
liant technique of portraying all
phases of life.
His experiences in a 'French war,
his travels over Europe, and his asso-
ciation with such personages of his
time as Emile Zola, the author, and
Whistler, the American painter, also
affected Manet. He was awarded the
Cross of the Legion of Honor before
his death in 1883.
As a forerunner of modern art as
it is known today, Manet struck the
keynote of honest portrayal of con-
temporary life, which in Professor
Focillon's wards, made him "a good
painter of eternal life." With such
works as "The Old Musicien," "The
Bar at the Folies Bergere," and the
famed "Christ," he depicts being
mocked by the Romans, Manet, cog-
nizant of beauty but inflexible with
truth, shows his all-encompasin'g
vitality, Professor Focillon concluded.
