Edgar Degas. Portrait of Monsieur and Madame Edouard Manet.
Monsieur and Madame Edouard Manet. Degas painted his fellow-artist listening to his wife playing the piano; Mme Manet was considered a particularly gifted player of German music. Degas gave the painting to Manet; but the latter was dissatisfied with Suzanne’s face and cut the canvas accordingly. See Manet's works here
