The small but exquisite work, "Women at the Races" defines Edouard Manet as a "flâneur." Flâneur was the term for the purposeful male stroller of Paris, a cultured sophisticate of sharp observation and ready comment about the flow of events, the city’s movements, and changes in fashion—in short, all life.Manet came from a well-to-do bourgeois family, and studied with the academic painter Thomas Couture. Yet he rejected the traditional, elevated subjects favored by academic painters, finding inspiration in contemporary life in the largely rebuilt and modernized Paris of the Second Empire.
