An 1874 oil on canvas painting, Boating, by Edouard Manet (1832-83), the French modernist painter. Painted at Argenteuil on the Seine. Typical of Manet's work, the two figures seem disconnected from each other, and the scene is very flat as in the Japanese prints that had become popular in Europe in this period. Another feature from Japanese art is the abrupt cutting of the scene. The work was exhibited in the 1879 Paris Salon. (Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York)
