✰ Édouard Manet was a French painter. One of the first 19th-century artists to approach modern-life subjects, he was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. His early masterworks, The Luncheon on the Grass (Le déjeuner sur l'herbe) and Olympia, engendered great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, these are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art.

This app includes an illustrated 27 page biography, a huge browsable and searchable gallery of Manet's art, and links to art history documentary video "courses" from Smarthistory, which are viewable from within the app.
The painting reproductions are zoomable, and you can tap them to see title, date, and other info. You can scroll through the gallery, search it, or look at it by genre.
This application is a great example of how one should be done for the presentation of a influential artist. Just from the opening users will able to sense the love and care put into the development of the app. Users can start out by reading a brief yet detailed introduction on Manet which summarizes his life and displays some of his most prominent works. The introduction is easy to navigate with high quality text, zoom capabilities and the ability to swipe page by page in a effortless manner. If you ate most interested in viewing his works you can jump straight to his gallery by tapping the gallery section which displays just about all his known works from different points of his career. Users have the option of zooming onto the images, saving the images to their camera roll and sharing with others. Each artwork is provided with the title and time period in which it was exhibited. For artists like Manet who have hundreds of paintings users can search or discover by genre, keyword, slideshow or just by random selection. Users can also videos on the many different art periods throughout history. One negative is when loading the app for the first time and the database is building users are provided with classical music in the background to pass the time. This works to enhance the experience and it would be great if there was a option so music can be played during the entire time the app is open. The app is helpful in showing in the extras section all the other artists and art guide applications that have been created by the same developer. For admirers or students of art these applications are a great discovery for those who want to learn more and examine the works of some of history's most influential painters. This application and the others are well worth the purchase.
