Manet's modernism, or, The face of painting in the 1860s

by Michael Fried | 28 January 1999
PAPERBACK
Category: Art & Design
Synopsis
Manet's Modernism is the culminating work in a trilogy of books by Michael Fried exploring the roots and genesis of pictorial modernism. Fried provides an entirely new understanding not only of the art of Manet and his generation but also of the way in which the Impressionist simplification of Manet's achievement had determined subsequent accounts of pictorial modernism down to the present. Like Fried's previous books, Manet's Modernism is a milestone in the historiography of modern art. "Beautifully produced. . . . [Fried's] thought is always stimulating, if not provocative. This is an important book, which all students of modernism, in the broadest sense, will find rewarding."-Virginia Quarterly Review "An astonishing piece of scholarship that will cause readers to rethink their understanding of Manet's influence, ambition, and achievement."-Gary Michael, Bloomsbury Review "An audaciously brilliant book, long awaited and as essential reading for philosophers as for art historians."-Wayne Andersen, Common Knowledge "Art history of the highest originality and distinction."-Arthur C. Danto, New York Times Book Review
