Getting on with the essay.

The set essay:
To write an essay on an image of our choice, using 1000 words, then choosing a further 6 images which have a relation to this original, using 500 words.

Edouard Manet dejeuner sur l'herbe...

I've always been interested with this image, there's just so much to say about it, its pretty controversial for its time, and was the inspiration toward many other artists. I like dissecting the painting, and learning what each part symbolises, why is the woman staring at the viewer?..as if she has been photographed off guard. I've found lots of new fascinating facts along the way, so I'm eager now to get writing this essay, but i still need to find the other 6 images to relate to this one!
