After Manet- Gulgilim Luncheon.  oil on birch panel 33"x49.5" (2006)

Manet’s painting Le dejeuner sur l’herb (Luncheon on the Grass) engendered great controversy and shocked Parisians in 1863. Manet presented a nude female with clothed gentlemen at a picnic. Fenton updates the same concept showing the ladies undressed and the men in clothes.
