Wet Magic Digital Art by Sarah Vernon
Adapted from Francois Boucher’s La Toilette de Venus of 1751.

Does anyone recognise the title I’ve stolen? Clue: Think of the books you read as children. The older you are, the better placed you will be for finding it familiar, even if you haven’t read it!

Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier by Édouard Manet is one of my favourite paintings. Some classics, I find, can pall after too many viewings — postcards, chocolate boxes and so forth. Not Le Déjeuner. Not for me.
The French artist Édouard Manet (1832-1883) might well have gone into the law had he followed the dictates of his upper-class family but his passion for art held sway. Influenced in his style by the work of Francisco José de Goya and Diego Velázquez, he chose subjects not hitherto considered suitable for art such as gypsies and beggars or nudes alongside the fully-clothed and strove towards a form of realism that paved the way for modernism. Luncheon in the Studio, or Le Déjeuner dans l’atelier, which Manet painted in 1868, is on display at the Bayerische Staatsgemaldesammlungen in Munich.

I have to confess to an unwavering passion for narrow streets. The temptation to go exploring and, inevitably, to get hopelessly lost, is overpowering. This type of street is often laid with cobble…
