The Races

The Races

Support: Cream chine collé

Sheet: 52.2 x 66.5 cm (20 9/16 x 26 3/16 in.); Image: 40.3 x 51.7 cm (15 7/8 x 20 3/8 in.)

The Race Track is based on Manet's painting The Races at Longchamp. The lithograph, however, conveys the excitement of horseracing even more than the painting. Energy and movement are suggested by bold, quickly drawn lines and by rapid, curving smudges. The unrestrained, spontaneous use of the lithographic crayon foreshadows the expressiveness of 20th-century printmaking.
