Biografia breu
Françoise Cachin was born into a distinguished family. Her grandfathers were Marcel Cachin, a founder of the French Communist Party and its newspaper, L’Humanité, and Pointillist painter Paul Signac. It was the latter's influence that won out, as she chose to study art at the Sorbonne’s Institute of Art and Archaeology. She was an art historian specializing in Impressionism and Post-Impressionism when in 1969, she became a curator at the National Museum of Modern Art and oversaw its move into the Pompidou Center. In 1978, she joined the planning team for a new museum to be dedicated to 19th-century art and housed in a former railway station, the Gare d’Orsay, and was named director of the Musée d'Orsay. Several of her books were translated into English, among them "Paul Signac" (1971), "Gauguin: The Quest for Paradise" (1992) and "Manet: The Influence of the Modern" (1995). She retired as Director of French Museums, with responsibility for the nation's 34 national museums and more than 1,000 city and local museums, in 2001. Ms. Cachin also helped create and run the French Regional and American Museum Exchange, a network to promote cooperation and shared exhibitions between French and American museums outside major cities.



I really like the Winslow Homer entitled Nuit d'ete on pg. 135! Ed and I bought this catalog when we visited the Musee d'Orsay in 1998.

Following the introduction are three essays: Manet's Pictorial Language, Manet and Impressionism, Manet and the Print. Then follows the catalogue - 460 pages. The book concludes with a Chronology; two appendices: Letters from Manet to Zola and Documents relating to the "Maximilian Affair"; Editions of the Prints; List of Exhibitions; Bibliography; and indices.

The catalogue lists 221 works, each accompanied by a commentary, often reasonably extensive, and illustrations. In total there are 323 black and white and 138 colour illustrations, many of them half to full page in size and occasionally including a detail view of the work. The illustrations also include sketches and photographs.

This is a substantial and comprehensive survey with good quality images.
