/ Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe (The Luncheon on the Grass) is a large oil on canvas painting by Édouard Manet created in 1862 and 1863.
.
It depicts a female nude and a scantily dressed female bather on a picnic with two fully dressed men in a rural setting. Rejected by the Salon jury of 1863, Manet seized the opportunity to exhibit this and two other paintings in the 1863 Salon des Refusés, where the painting sparked public notoriety and controversy. The piece is now in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. A smaller, earlier version can be seen at the Courtauld Gallery, London.

Despite the mundane subject, Manet deliberately chose a large canvas size, measuring 208 by 264.5, normally reserved for historical, religious, and mythological subjects. The style of the painting breaks with the academic traditions of the time. He did not try to hide the brush strokes; the painting even looks unfinished in some parts of the scene. The nude is also starkly different from the smooth, flawless figures of Cabanel or Ingres.

A nude woman casually lunching with fully dressed men was an affront to audiences' sense of propriety, though Émile Zola, a contemporary of Manet's, argued that this was not uncommon in paintings found in the Louvre. Zola also felt that such a reaction came from viewing art differently than "analytic" painters like Manet, who use a painting's subject as a pretext to paint.

Today was such a good day. I went to the SkyDeck with my parents and waited 3 and half hours to only stand in the glass box for maybe a minute. In the meantime, ya girl learned how patient she is and how long she can stand up for without listening to the urge of wanting to sit! 🙌🏼😂
