Although not truly an Impressionist himself, Manet is widely considered the father of Impressionism and one of the most influential painters of his century. In this article we briefly look at his life.
In 1883, the famous French impressionist painter spent the summer in Guernsey, creating 15 paintings in little over a month. Most of these feature Moulin Huet bay. These paintings were the subject of a set of commemorative postage stamps, issued by the Bailiwick of Guernsey in 1983.
