At a time when women from the Parisian haute bourgeoisie were kept corseted and confined, the aspiring Impressionist painter Berthe Morisot jeopardised her ‘good girl’ reputation to model for Édouard Manet.

On his return to Paris in he studied art with the French academic painter Thomas was influenced by Velázquez and Goya and later by Japanese painters and printmakers and the objectivity of photography.

Manet exhibited three paintings, including the scandalous Déjeuner sur l’herbe (Musée d’Orsay, Paris). The public professed to be shocked by the subject of a nude woman blithely enjoying a picnic in the company of two fully clothed men, while a second, scantily clad woman bathes in a stream.

The young, poverty-stricken redhead became his favorite model, and Manet painted her reclining nude in Olympia — a work that scandalized the Paris art. Manet by Gilles Neret,available at Book The Paris salon rejected his Dejeuner sur l'herbe with its juxtaposition of fully dressed men and a nude woman, while the steady gaze and unabashed pose of the prostitute Olympia, a very modern reworking of Titian's Venus of Urbino, caused a society scandal.
