Excerpt from Édouard Manet
Manet unhesitatingly sacrificed all the finesse of modelling in order to be able to see and to render absolute contrasts. In a face in which the classicist sees fine shades which give roundness to the mass, he sees only a plain surface evenly lit, bitten into by a few harsh shadows which throw up the features in relief. This process can be seen in caricature in one of Manet's early works, the poor Angelina in the Luxembourg, where the face consists entirely of chalk and soot, which never mingle. Fortunately, Manet soon saw that his harsh shadows must not be abused and that forms and figures could not be so abruptly split up into compartments of black and white. But he reduced every effect to a bare contrast of ﬂat tones with hard outlines, sometimes ending in nothing more than a striking summary reminiscent of the Italians or the Spaniards, though they were more sure and less deliberately violent.
