PROFESSOR CRAIG CLUNAS, PORTRAIT OF MADEMOISELLE CLAUS BY ÉDOUARD MANET

Are Eastern Art and Western Art basically the same, and what is painting for? On Édouard Manet, Cézanne and their similarity to Chinese paintings.

"I think one of the reasons Xu Beihong disliked Manet and Cezanne, modernism generally, actually relates to some of the ways in which it looked to him to be more, sort of, Chinese than previous forms of realistic European art"
