Notes

Summary:
The straw boater (hat) became synonymous with summer leisure. In the hard-scrabble, often oppressive Industrial Revolution, leisure time for many was hard to come by. Owning and wearing a straw boater was the wearer's badge that life had become more than simply hard work. Manet, as well as other artists of the time, use the boater as a symbol of the good life and the emergence of "leisure" as a right and privlage. According to various scholars the man at the tiller may be Rudolph Leenhoff, Manet's brother-in-law.The stippled parts of the painting, made up of mass color, are consistent with the concept of Impressionism, but there are touches of black present, which would have been considered a heresy by the instigators of the movement.
