Manet's Picnic

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
A group of art students recreate Manet's famous painting, their aim being to shock their audience. But can their modern recreation ever hope to cause the scandal that the original did? Indeed, was Manet's painting even more scandalous than history suggests? Interweaving the decadent Paris of Manet with the modern world, this story offers a startling revision of art history.

About Severin Rossetti

Severin Rossetti was a teacher of fine art, but now works in a Liverpool museum/gallery, less money but a lot less stress. At the same time that he turned from teaching fine art, he also turned from its practice -have you seen the crap that passes for fine art these days?!?- to concentrate on writing. After many rejection slips he finally had some encouragement. 'Interesting,' said one editor, 'but it lacks passion. Spice it up a bit.' Which he did, only to be told 'wow!'... 'well!'... 'spiced up, yes, but we can't possibly publish this!' Fortunately, others could, with the result that his erotic stories have been published in the UK and the USA in various magazines and anthologies. Novels and short story collections have also been published in the US by Renaissance If the erotic genre is not your thing, however, please note that also available on Smashwords are more 'serious' works, some for sale but many for free. Strange, though, that the erotic genre is proving the most popular, and especially the free ones. So... a cry from the heart... feel free to try the free ones but PLEASE, also, splash out a dollar or two if you can afford it! And if you want to know any more, please contact the author at

Review by: Ernest Winchester on Jan. 28, 2011 :
A clever juxtapositioning of the two parallel stories, one old, one modern, yet the same. The only complaint I have is the slip in point-of-view when twice the word ‘my’ should have been ‘her,’ unless I totally got it wrong, at the point of the story where Victoria is staging the display. But we all do it, those of us who try to arrange words in a way that makes sense.
