How is this doggyphile and wannabe painter not to love the rendition of a master?
The art expert Frédérick Chanoit said the painting, measuring 32.5cm by 24.5cm, had been produced in 20 minutes and is an example of Manet’s technical skill.
“It is not one of his chefs-d’œuvre [masterpieces] but it [is] a marvellous interpretation of Manet’s skill; a wonderful symphony of tufts and touches that show his pure genius,” Chanoit said.
