Our Inspiration:Boating

Édouard Manet (French, 1832–1883)
Oil on canvas, 38 1/4 x 51 1/4 in., 1874
H. O. Havemeyer Collection,
Bequest of Mrs. H. O. Havemeyer, 1929   29.100.115

Manet summered at Gennevilliers in 1874, often spending time with Monet and Renoir across the Seine at Argenteuil, where Boating was painted. Beyond adopting the lighter touch and palette of his younger Impressionist colleagues, Manet exploits the broad planes of color and strong diagonals of Japanese prints to give inimitable form to this scene of outdoor leisure. Shown in the Salon of 1879, Boating was deemed “the last word in painting” by the artist Mary Cassatt, who recommended the acquisition to the New York collectors Louisine and H. O. Havemeyer.
