Manet at his easel
The Funeral (Baudelaire)
Posthumous portrait of Baudelaire
Édouard Manet was one of the few Parisians to attend the funeral of Charles Baudelaire in 1867. Manet made a moody painting of that scene (in greens and grays, above) and etched a posthumous portrait of the moody poet he had admired and supported.
Below, another etched portrait by Manet – of his brother's wife, Berthe Morisot – seen here with Morisot's own painting of a young woman on a small sofa in a pale pink dress.
