Edourard Manet was born on January 23, 1832 in Paris.

He was a painter and printmaker who in his own work accomplished the transition from the realism of Gustave Courbet to Impressionism.

Manet broke new ground in choosing subjects from events and appearances of his own time and in stressing the definition of the
painting as the arrangement of paint areas on a canvas over and above its function as representation.

Exhibited in 1863 at the Salon des Refusés his Le Déjeuner sur l'herbe ("Luncheon on the Grass") aroused the hostility of the
critics and the enthusiasm of a group of young painters who later formed the nucleus of the Impressionists.

Manet's other notable works include Olympia (1863)
and A Bar at the Folies-Bergére (1882).


The Titanic arrives in Southhampton on April 3, 1912.
She left on April 10 at 12:00 Noon.
On Sunday, April 14Titanic struck an icberg and sank on April 15, 1912 at 2:20 am.

The story of the Titanic and the iceberg has grown into a legend of the sea. It took her discovery in 1985 to begin to find the
truth behind the myth. One of the thingsthat makes the Titanic so fascinating is that she represented the best of technology when she set sail on her ill-fated voyage in 1912, and it took the best of technology in the form of sonar, satellite tracking, and deep-dive technology to locate her grave 73 years later.

In the early 1900's, waterborne transportation was the norm; today, satellites are taken for granted by our society. But we tend to forget the immense effort that these two technologies require to operate to their maximum potential. Until recently, the technology did not exist to locate, photograph, and explore this ship that rested two and a half miles down on the ocean floor.
