ART QUOTE BY MANET

BLACK IS NOT A COLOR
                                                                          Manet

It is said that Manet owned black, that he used it like no artist before or after him.  It separated him from the Impressionist, who declared never to use black.  Though Manet is often associated with the Impressionist he was not one.  He admired the movement, but thought he was often invited to show with them he always refused.  He saw his function in changing the art world as different and a different focus than the Impressionists.
