In the winter of 1880 Edouard Manet, then 49, was dying. In the last months of his life he funnelled his waning energy into a series of remarkable still lifes - 16 small paintings of flowers - which are brought together in this book. An essay by Andrew Forge pays tribute to the artist's struggle and his legacy, and Robert Gordon's selections from Manet's letters add poignancy to this last glow of a brilliant artistic flame.

This lovely little book offers 16 portraits of floral bouquets done by Manet between 1881 and 1883, when physical decline prevented him from working on the larger, more complex scenes of earlier years. An essay precedes the high quality reproductions, each of which is accompanied by a selection from Manet's letters or other contemporary documents. Suggested for large collections and a treat for smaller ones. Robin Kaplan, M.L.S., The Information Group, Los Angeles
