    Manet too was into “really dark topics.”
    So dark, I can hardly see it, even enlarged.

    Click-to-enlarge image can be found here, or at Mr. Melcher’s blog entry.

    Boy with a Sword (link shows painting’s Wikipedia page, Google translated Dutch Wikipedia page has more) is shown, with a different coloration image, and described, by its current-location page (click image there for enlargement, more under Notes).

    A later attempt by the artist to reproduce it in an etching is presented here.

    A chapter (see pages 26-27 for this painting) of an online book, describing several paintings at the current-location, is devoted to this artist.

    Another different coloration, click-to-enlarge image can be found here. The artist’s bio, Wikipedia page (Google translated French Wikipedia page has more), and collection (more under Subcategories at each level).

    Eighth, of the 11 works, by this artist, that have, so far, appeared in Mr. Melcher’s blog, to also appear here.

    Unless that’s just a REALLY large novelty pen.

    First thing that went through my mind was “what a crappy job of PhotoShopping.” Looks like the background and the foreground don’t belong together – especially around the feet.
