Who doesn’t love a good picnic? These two chaps are having a wonderful time in a Paris park with a couple of “ladies”. Fruit, cheese, wine, and sparkling conversation -Great stuff! Painted in 1863 this picture was considered scandalous at the time. Nudes were common in painting but not portrayed as naked women cavorting with well dressed men. Manet really stirred the pot with this one!
