Summary
Manet is one of the main candidates for the title of the most important artist there's been. As the reluctant father of Impressionism, and the painter of Dejeuner sur L'Herbe, he can probably be accused of inventing modern art. But his story is fascinating on so many other levels. Manet was a born rebel, in his art and in his life. Always cited as the father of the Impressionists, he stubbornly refused to show with them, and was careful to maintain an aesthetic distance from Monet, Renoir and the others. They worshipped him. He looked down on them. Using the life of Manet as his narrative arch, Waldemar Januszczak, tells the story of complex and difficult man who started a revolution that continues to rumble on today. Some bits of Manet's revolutionary output are justly famous. But most bits of it are not. And by some strange quirk of serendipity, Manet's full story has never been told in a major television documentary. This is a documentary to right that wrong. Written and presented by Waldemar Januszczak, writer for The Sunday Times, formerly critic of The Guardian and two time winner of the Press Association's Critic of the Year Award
