Catalogue Note

From the mid-1860s, Manet and his family would spend several weeks each summer staying at Berck-sur-mer or another nearby town. Advertised as three short hours from Paris by train, these rural settings inspired some of Manet's most inventive works, including the present panel and Sur la plage à Berck, now in the collection of the Musée d'Orsay (see fig. 1). These respites—both personal and creative—allowed Manet to experiment more radically in advance of the first Impressionist Exhibition in 1874. Vaches au pâturage reflects Manet's technique of working en plein air, capturing an ephemeral moment with quick brushstrokes.
