Édouard Manet⁣ Tama, the Japanese Dog⁣ c. 1875⁣ “Like many of his fellow Impressionists, Édouard Manet was influenced by Japanese art and aesthetics, as evidenced by this painting of a Japanese Chin dog named Tama.⁣ Tama, whose name is the Japanese word for “jewel,” is pictured standing over a Japanese doll. The dog was brought to France by collector Henri Cernuschi, who founded Paris’s Musée Cernuschi to house his extensive collection of Asian art. Not content to have his pet immortalized by just one Impressionist master, Cernuschi had Tama sit for Auguste Renoir as well.”⁣ #paintings #painting #artlovers #famousartists #famousart #artlegends #masterpieceart #artmasterpieces #thearts #everythingart #arteverything #artislife #artislife e🎨 #dailyart #fineart #arthistorian #arthistorynerd #arthistory #historyofart #édouardmanet #edouardmanet #manet #tamathejapanesedog #tama #19thcenturyart #mus éecernuschi #augusterenoir
