Édouard Manet (1832–1883), Dead Toreador, 1868, etching and aquatint on paper, NGP

Manet in Black-and-White

The French painter Édouard Manet (1832⁠–⁠1883) had only marginal interest in graphics. About a dozen works, mostly etchings, from NGP’s Collection of Prints and Drawings, present this lesser-known chapter of Manet’s work, revealing how the artist with a lifetime devotion to painting chose to express himself in the not-so-colourful graphic medium.
