Showdown of a Couple of Centuries Ago by 


When one begins their education on Impressionism it can be quite easy to confuse Manet and Monet as only a single vowel differentiates their surnames.

Some junior art historians would hope a competition would spring forth; one where the two impressionists would put down their brushes and wield only their gloved fists! Then the victor could be more easily decided!

Oh, if only it were so easy. Their steady resolve never brought them to fisticuffs with each other, only towards their masterful application of movement and light to the canvas. And so these aforementioned junior art historians will have to rely on their own aesthetic subjectivity to call the bout.
