Details     Description
   
Artist Manet, Édouard The gardens of the Tuileries Palace (burned down during the Commune if 1871) were opened to the public by Napoleon III and soon became a popular meeting place. This lovely portrait of Second Empire society (many of the figures are thought to have been based on photographs) is an example of Manet’s concerns with contemporary life. The artist himself can be seen standing in a dandyish pose on the extreme left; among the crowd are Baudelaire, Offenbach, Zacharie, Astruc, Theophile Gautier and Fantin-Latour.
