Five superb artists from the nineteenth-century. Édouard Manet (France), who painted modern life and shocked Paris with ‘Olympia’.

Anders Zorn (Sweden), painter of U.S. presidents, nudes, and the country folk of his homeland. Joaquín Sorolla (Spain), who excelled in bringing light and vibrancy to depictions of the countryside and the sea.
