The names Manet and VelÁzquez are used in the title of this exhibition (in 2003 at the MusÉe d'Orsay in Paris and New York's Metropolitan Museum of Art) and catalog to attract interest to the much broader topic of the discovery, collecting, and influence on 19th- century painters in France and America of Spanish painting. The beautifully illustrated catalog contains 11 essays on subjects that include the formation of the collections of Spanish painting at the Louvre, the Prado, Dresden's GemÄldegalerie, and the Hispanic Museum in New York; the discovery of Spanish painting in 19th-century France; the reception of Goya in France; and the profound influence of Spanish painting on American art.
