Remaining controversial to this day, some suggest this work is a statement on the taboo of Parisian prostitution while others label it a treatise on the propriety of the time. French artist Manet often shocked the public with his statements in favor of individual freedom. Though he often broke with academic tradition, Manet's amazing skill still earns him a place in every mention of the 19th century's greatest artists. The authentic stretched canvas replica painting captures the original work's texture, depth of color, and even its subtle brushstrokes, which are applied by hand exclusively for Design Toscano. With bas-relief organic styling, the multi-tiered, replica European style frame is cast in quality designer resin and highlighted with an aged gold-toned finish.
