French artist ?douard Manet’s (1832-1993) child images featured figures of different ages and social classes. His works also displayed venues for playing. Many of those works implemented simple movement or toys to indicate play in progress or at rest. Children playing alone were often associated with gardens and domesticity. Within Enlightenment thinking, child play was a central focal point and continued to be so later for Romanticism, which emphasized the relationship between people and nature. Parisian writers in the mid-nineteenth century stressed the creativity derived from playing as well as its social meanings. The ways in which Charles Baudelaire and Manet’s understanding of childhood influenced each other is a significant topic within modern art studies. This essay takes Manet’s solitary child play as its main line of inquiry. It also makes reference to the cultural context of childrearing at the time along with relevant Impressionist works. These works highlighted the bodily and emotional development within children and changes seen in bourgeois domestic spaces.
