Artists often influence other artists. This was the case with Édouard Manet when he first saw Velazquez's work on a visit to the Prado in 1866. With his flat backgrounds and vivid brush work, Velazquez was a revelation. Back in Paris, Manet began work on a new painting: of an anonymous regimental fifer in the Spanish army. The painting was rejected by the jury of the Salon of 1866. But a year later, Manet funded an exhibition of his own work—and art history changed forever.
