– Sailing Ships and Seagulls by Edouard Manet
(not published on this website; Rouart Wildenstein 1975 no. 77 and there named Bateau de peche, arrivant vent arriere), a marine painting by Edouard Manet, will be shown at the exhibition Manet at the Complesso del Vittoriano in Rome, 7 October 2005 – 5 February 2006.
The exhibition – the first ever in Italy of Manet’s work – will attempt to provide as comprehensive a selection of paintings, watercolors and drawings as possible. Etching and lithography, which played crucial roles in Manet’s art, will be accorded considerable prominence as well in the exhibition and the catalogue which will accompany it.
