He was one of the first artists to paint modern life and played a pivotal part in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. He was born in 1832 in Paris to an affluent and well-connected family. It was envisioned for Edouard to pursue a career in law but his Uncle encouraged Manet to pursue his passion of painting.
