I, no. 49, illustrated fig. 49 Françoise Cachin, Manet, London, 1990, no. 12, illustrated p. 148 Catalogue Note Throughout his career, Edouard Manet continuously revisited the subject of portraiture in all its facets, allowing an engagement with his stylistic development from an early consultation of the Old Masters up to an impressionistic influence. La Femme aux chiens shows a clear influence of Vélazquez and Goya, whose paintings the artist had studied and admired in the Louvre. Spain and all things Spanish were very much en vogue in Paris during the Second Empire and a group of Spanish dancers performing at the Hippodrome served Manet as a continuous source of inspiration. As various members of the company feature in his masterpieces of the time, it is not unlikely that the woman in La Femme aux chiens was one of them. Whilst the identity of the woman in the present work remains subject to speculation, she has a hauntingly strong presence and intense allure. Her confident bearing commands the viewers’’’’ attention and the two large dogs she holds on a leash suggest her being independent and in full control. A soft warm gaze and relaxed posture counterbalance this and in the background, a woman pushing a pram hints at motherhood. Manet’’’’s masterful skill in rendering the lively and intimate character of his subjects was partly achieved by adorning portraits with references of contemporary life. In doing so, he transformed this enduring medium into a snapshot of everyday life, vivid and uniquely tailored to the individual sitter. Seemingly painted en plein air, this marvellous portrait shows one of Manet’’’’s preferred modes for portraiture. He sought for immediacy and spontaneity to capture modern life. Claude Monet reported that ‘Manet made things very difficult for himself: he had a laborious and careful method. He always wanted his paintings to look as if done at the first attempt; but often, in the evening, he scraped down his palette knife everything he had done during the day’’’’ (quoted in Mary Anne Stevens, “Manet: Portraying life. Themes and Variations,” Manet: Portraying Life (exhibition catalogue), London, Royal Academy of Arts, 2013, pp. 20-21).

II, Paris, 1975, no. 34, illustrated p. 15 Catalogue Note Between 1878 and 1883 Manet executed nearly sixty pastel portraits of fashionable Parisian women. Many of the sitters were friends, some were actresses and others were models. Most were fascinating and beautiful, and several—for example, the actress Méry Laurent—were known to be involved with such figures as Stéphane Mallarmé and perhaps Manet himself. The present work depicts Madame du Paty, who was the wife of the genre and history painter Léon du Paty. According to Adolphe Tabarant, she was close to the Manet family (Adolphe Tabarant, Manet et ses Oeuvres, 4th edition, Paris, 1947, p. 368). Moreau-Nélaton reports that she was "une mondaine à qui l'on prête quelques aventures" (Etienne Moreau-Nélaton, Manet raconté par lui-même, vol. II, Paris, 1926, p.68). This charming work was first in the collection of Madame du Paty herself, who lent it to the posthumous exhibition of Manet's work held in Paris in 1884. Subsequently it was acquired by the distinguished collector Auguste Pellerin whose superb collection of works by Manet was the subject of an exhibition at the Galerie Bernheim-Jeune in Paris in 1910.

ÉDOUARD MANET Au Prado II. Aquatint and etching printed in black on cream laid Japan paper, 1863-67. 222x155 mm; 8 3/4x6 1/8 inches, full margins. Second state (of 2). The Porcaboeuf edition of approximately only 12, aside from the Manet edition of only several proofs. A superb, richly-inked impression of this extremely scarce etching. We have found fewer than 12 other impressions at auction in the past 30 years. Harris notes that the 1863 Manet edition consisted of, "An edition of between 5 and 28 sets of 15 etchings, printed on Chine paper for friends and patrons of the artist . . . Later sets of the edition might have included State I of Au Prado II, which is known in proofs on Chine." As this subject was not originally included in the 1863 Manet edition, it seems likely that most, if not all, of the impressions to have appeared at auction over the past 30 years are from the Porcaboeuf edition.
