In 1839, Delaroche announced: ‘From today, painting is dead’. His proclamation was a response to seeing the first successful photograph, the daguerreotype.
Resurrection is a revival of the style and technique of artist Edouard Manet (1832 –1883). In a sense Manet was an early photojournalist with a paintbrush; his paintings spoke out about contemporary social issues and he was inspired by photography and Renaissance paintings.
