An 1880-1 oil on canvas painting, The Escape of Henri de Rochefort, by Edouard Manet (1832-83), the French modernist painter. Henri de Rochfort escaped from the penal colony of New Caledonia in 1874, crossing the Indian Ocean in a small boat. The work shows the influence of impressionism on Manet with a lighter palette and vigorous brushstrokes. (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
