  • 05/06/15--06:10: Édouard Manet - part 7
  • 1877-82c Édouard Manet portrait by Ferdinand Mulnier
    Édouard Manet (1832 – 1883) was a French painter. He was one of the first 19th century artists to paint modern life, and was a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism. His early masterworks “Le déjeuner sur l’herbe” (The luncheon on the Grass) and “Olympia”, both painted in 1863, caused 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 is part 7 of a 9 – part post on the works of Édouard Manet. For full biographical notes see part 1. For earlier works see parts 1 -  6 also.

    1939 Keep Calm and Carry On (UK)

    British propaganda during World War 2:

    Britain recreated the World War I Ministry of Information for the duration of World War II to generate propaganda to influence the population towards support for the war effort. A wide range of media was employed aimed at local and overseas audiences. Traditional forms of media such as newspapers and posters were joined by new media, including cinema (film), newsreels, and radio. A wide range of themes were addressed, fostering hostility to towards the enemy, support for the allies, and specific pro-war projects such as conserving metal, waste, and growing vegetables.


    Propaganda was deployed to encourage people to volunteer for onerous or dangerous war work, such as factories of in the Home Guard. Male conscription ensured that general recruitment posters were not needed, but specialist services posters did exist, and many posters aimed at women, such as the Land Army or the ATS. Posters were also targeted at increasing production. Pictures of the Armed Forces often called for support from civilians, and posters juxtaposed civilian workers and soldiers to urge that the forces were relying on them, and to instruct hem in the importance of their role. People were encouraged to spend holidays assisting the harvest, even when they were also being encouraged to stay at home.

    American propaganda during World War 2:

    At first the American government was reluctant to engage I propaganda campaigns, but pressure from the media, the business sector and advertisers who wanted direction persuaded the government to take an active role. Even so, the government insisted that its actions were not propaganda, but a means of providing information. These efforts were slowly and haphazardly formed into a more unified propaganda effort.


    In 1942 President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Office of War Information (OWI). This mid-level agency joined a host of other wartime agencies, including the War and State Departments, in the dissemination of war information and propaganda. Officials at OWI used numerous tools to communicate to the American public, posters among them.


    The United States used posters to advertise, and produced more propaganda posters than any other country fighting in World War II; almost 200,000 different designs were printed during the war. These posters employed a number of themes to encourage support for the war, including conservation, production, recruiting, home efforts and secrecy. Posters were usually placed in areas without paid advertisements – the most common areas were post offices, railroad stations, schools, restaurants and retail stores.


    The American war posters were not designed by the government, but by artists who received no compensation for their work. Government agencies held competitions for artists to submit designs that it could choose from.

    During World War 2, and for a period beyond, the Allies generated propaganda to influence the population towards support for the war effort. A wide range of media was employed aimed at local and overseas audiences. Traditional forms of media such as newspapers and posters were joined by new media, including cinema (film), newsreels, and radio. A wide range of themes were addressed, fostering hostility to towards the enemy, support for the allies, and specific pro-war projects such as conserving metal, waste, and growing vegetables.

    The Four Freedoms is a series of four oil paintings, made in 1943. Each original is 116.2 x 90 cm, and are now held in the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. They refer to President Franklin D. Roosevelt's "Four Freedoms State of the Union Address (January 1941), in which he identified essential human rights that should be universally protected. The theme was incorporated into the Atlantic Charter and became part of the charter of the United Nations. The paintings were reproduced in The Saturday Evening Post over four consecutive weeks in 1943. They became the highlight of a touring exhibition sponsored by The Post and the U.S. Department of the Treasury. The exhibition and accompanying sales drives of war bonds raised over $132 million.

  • My next post (beginning tomorrow) will be the start of a definitive series on Pierre-Auguste Renoir.

    I would just like to take a moment to explain why many images of Renoir’s and other artist’s work will be omitted from this blog now and in the future.


    Part of my own remit in producing this art blog, a purely educational and non-profit undertaking that takes up many hours of my time, is to show as complete a collection of an artists work as possible. Unfortunately copyright issues are now making it increasingly difficult to negotiate this endeavour. Certain very popular artist’s estates , including the copyright on all images of their works, are held in trust by the artist’s family – for this reason it would not be possible for instance to show the works of Matisse, Picasso or Magritte now or in the future on this blog. The lapse of copyright seventy years after an artist’s death ‘rule’ no longer applies in certain circumstances either:


    Another issue now threatens the ability to show works held in public institutions. Museums and galleries technically not able to copyright the work, are copyrighting the photographs of the work, and demanding fees, even for educational use. Many museums still abide by free educational use, (the Rijksmuseum in Holland for example provide an excellent free download facility of hi-resolution images), but certain others, particularly in the USA do not, and consequently I am unable to include quite a lot works as a result. The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, for instance, have recently gone over to the fee basis. Renoir’s work held by these institutions can be seen on their individual websites, but won’t be shown here, so good luck with that.


    Lists of artists work can always be found on other generic sites that ignore the new rulings, like the "Wiki" sites for instance, but personally I find that very poor colour reproduction and inadequate descriptions of size and location often don’t do the job anyway, but as the French put it “c’est la vie.”


    "Sleeping Girl" by Renoir as seen on sites like Wikimedia and Wikiart and other sites, where someone thought Renoir had done a poor job with his colour palette and decided to enhance it. This is a very common practice with online sites, and a very misleading one:

    Pierre-Auguste Renoir in 1861
    An innovative artist, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born on February 25, 1841, in Limoges, France. He started out as an apprentice to a porcelain painter and studied drawing in his free time. After years as a struggling painter, Renoir helped launch an artistic movement called Impressionism in the 1870s. He eventually became one of the most highly regarded artists of his time. He died in Cagnes-sur-Mer, Franve, in 1919.

    Note: I managed to omit around 12 paintings from part 4 of this series when I posted it two days ago. It has now been updated.



    1876 Self Portrait at the Age of Thirty-Five oil on canvas 73 x 57 cm Fogg Museum of Art, Harvard University, Cambridge, Boston, MA
    An innovative artist, Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born on February 25, 1841, in Limoges, France. He started out as an apprentice to a porcelain painter and studied drawing in his free time. After years as a struggling painter, Renoir helped launch an artistic movement called Impressionism in the 1870s. He eventually became one of the most highly regarded artists of his time. He died in Cagnes-sur-Mer, Franve, in 1919.
