Manet and the American Civil War: The Battle of U.S.S. Kearsarge and C.S.S. Alabama: Exhibition Catalog
Juliet Wilson-Bareau (au); David C. Degener (au)
On June 19, 1864, the U.S. warship Kearsarge sank the Confed. raider Alabama off the coast of Cherbourg, France, in one of the most celebrated naval engagements (NE) of the Amer. Civil War. When Kearsarge later anchored off the French town of Boulogne-sur-Mer it was thronged by curious visitors, one of whom was the artist Edouard Manet. Although he did not witness the battle, Manet made a painting of it. His picture of the NE & his portrait of the Kearsarge belong to a group of seascapes of Boulogne whose unorthodox perspective & composition would profoundly influence the course of French painting. This cat. also discusses Manetís early experience of the sea, his other seascapes & the sources that influenced his art. Over 50 full-color and b&w illus.
