The balcony is a famous oil painting made by French painter Eduard Manet. It was made in the year 1868-69. The picture is considered as one of the most famous picture of that era. The picture named as “balcony” depicts four figures of a balcony, one of whom was sitting was the painter Berthe Morisot who had married mannets brother Eugene in the year 1874. It is seen that in the middle is the painter jean Baptiste Antoine guillemot. On the right is the violinist Fanny Claus. The last figure of this figure is partially obscured in the interior background could be possibly Leon Leenhoff who was the son of Manet. The painting had been exhibited in an art workshop in Paris salon of 1869 and the drawing had been kept by Manet until his death in 1883. After his death the painting had been sold to another famous painter Gustave Caillebotte in the year 1884 who left in French state in the year 1894 and currently it is owned by muse d’orsay in Paris. However behind this painting there is a big story which generally describes the inspiration of the painter that made him draw the picture. Generally the painting had been inspired by Majas on the balcony, by Francisco Goya who had created same kind of picture. The three characters of this picture are seemed to be the friends of manet who had no contact between them later on. While berthe Morisot on the left side of the picture and looked as a romantic and in accessible heroine with the young violin player Fanny Claus and the painter Antoine Guillemet had been seemed to be displaying indifference. The boy on the background had been the son of mannets. He however had adopted a colour palliate dominated by white, green and black colour with a bit of blue accent and a bit red. This had been the first ever portrait made by manet.  The picture had also described about a dog also which had been sitting alongside of the persons in the picture. However Manet had made many studies about the preparatory studies, painting the four subjects in the topic individually many times among them guillemot had studied the same for over 15 times. A preparatory study had been done for the balcony which had been painted at Boulogne in the year 1868.  The portrait of fanny clause who had been a close friend of manie’s wife Suzanne leenhoff, Claus had married to Manet’s friend Pierre prin in the year 1869. However the work had come front of people after mannets death in a studio sold by john singer Sargent. The portrait had been seen only once after it had first painted in the year 1968.  But in the year 2012 ashmolean museum in oxford had able to raise the fund for the art and acquired the same and to keep it permanently in a public collection to United Kingdom.


The painting was not well received since it had been exhibited in the art gallery of Paris in the year 1869. The aggressive and bold green of the balcony basically draws more attention and as evidenced in the article devoted to the work by the grand dictionary universe in the year 1878. However the painting had been contributed to basically and ecstatically realistic and the same reputation had been creating the same bad sense to the work. Here in the picture it is also been seen that the background have been using black colour extensively while for clothes and face the  white colour has been used badly. The use of blue and green colour have made the painting a masterpiece. However Manet had brought down the connection between the figures by treating them as a basic objective of this painting. Hence it is seen from this drawing that there are lives thrown over the dead objectives. None of them looks like others. One commentator have sacrifisedly called as the shutters are to be closed. Thus painting had got all the artists of all over the world. Manet had kept on painting until the death in 1883. The painting had been kept with Manet and later had been sold to Gustavo, Caillebotte who had paid 3000 francs for the picture. However Caillebotte had displayed the picture publically and kept the same in his house. Later on the art had been transferred to others. Surrealist Rene Magritte have painted a same kind of picture named perspective ll: Manet’s balcony in the year 1950. However a commentary over the topic have stated that on the balcony there are four coffins in the place of four people various artists like Michel Foucault have said that the painting describes the value between life and death and of the dawn and darkness and the same had been  manifested by the three characters.  He had also added that the balcony was the perfect area to place those coffins. The mechanism used here had been working towards the correct area will lean to the objective and are unable to provide. Though it is valid still are mysterious. When Manet painted this piece, scenes of bourgeois life were in vogue. Yet The Balcony went against the conventions of the day. All the subjects were close acquaintances of the artist, especially Berthe Morisot who here, pictured sitting in the foreground, makes her first appearance in Manet's work, and who went on to become one of his favourite models. The painting tells no story; At its presentation at the 1869 Salon, this group portrait was overwhelmingly misunderstood and there was the sarcastic reaction of the caricaturist Cham while another critic attacked "this gross art" and Manet who "lowered himself to the point of being in competition with the painters of the building trade". It is not surprising then, that a painting which took such liberties with tradition, convention and realism so shocked its early public. Hence the picture in a nutshell had been remained a big mystery overall.
