Overview

In 1874, the year of the first Impressionist exhibit, Manet showed his painting Gare Saint-Lazare at the Paris Salon. This book considers the enigmatic painting-exhibited as Le Chemin de fer (The Railway)- and the symbolic importance of the railroad in the work of Manet, Monet, Caillebotte, and other artists of the time. The book identifies the precise site of Manet's picture and sheds light on the crucial question of plein air versus studio painting.
