Manet/Velázquez: The French Taste for Spanish Painting (Metropolitan Museum of Art Series)
In 1804, at the dawn of the French Empire, there were no more than a handful of Spanish paintings in public collections in France. During the course of the 19th century, however, French collectors and museums assembled substantial holdings of works by such Spanish masters as Velazquez, El Greco, Zurbaran, Murillo and Goya. At the same time, French writers and artists - among them Delacroix, Gericault, Courbet, Millet, Bonnat, Degas, and, especially, Manet -came to understand, appreciate and even emulate Spanish painting of the Golden Age.
