This painting is named "Luncheon on the grass" by Edward Manet. It was painted in 1863 using the medium oil on canvas. To be honest I didn't really like this painting. I find it weird that the women is just sitting there naked while the men are fully clothed. I know at that time a painting like this was considered very scandalous and thus intriguing. I however do not like it. I don't understand why a women would be picnicking naked with two men. I also do not like the look she is giving the viewers. It just gives me an uncomfortable feeling. I don't understand the women in the background either. It is believed that she is bathing, but why would someone do that at lunch. I just really don't understand it.
