An 1870 oil on canvas, Bazille's Studio, by Frédéric Bazille (1841-1870), the French impressionist painter. The impressionists used their own studios to show works to their friends. Here in Bazille's studio, Edouard Manet (1832-1883), holding a cane, stands in front of the large painting on the easel. Manet seems to be explaining the picture to Claude Monet (1840-1926) behind him while Bazille listens (he is holding a palette). Over on the far left, Emile Zola (on the stairs) is talking to Pierre-Auguste Renoir (1841-1919). (Musée d'Orsay, Paris)
