I adore this painting; in fact, it is my favourite by Manet. A beautifully framed copy hangs in my dining room.
Why post it today?
The cold, the cold!
It’s far below zero–the chilliest temperature of the season. Since this painting makes me feel happy, content, and warm, I thought you might enjoy it, too.
George Moore by Édouard Manet, 1879:
George Moore died on 21 January 1933.
“If you ask me what I came to do in this world, I, an artist, will answer you: I am here to live out loud.”-Émile Zola
