Édouard Manet Boy with a Sword
The model in this painting is Leon Edouard Koella, son of Suzanne Leenhoff and, it is presumed, Manet. Made in 1861, it is first exhibited at the Louis Martinet gallery in Paris in a show that opens March 1, 1863. The critic Ernest Chesneau praises the painting for its vivid colors and for the expressiveness of the boy, while Emile Zola calls attention to the work's stylistic affinities with the great masters of Spanish painting, most of all Velazquez and Goya. Between 1861 and 1862 Manet makes several etchings of the same subject.
