From Museum of Fine Arts, Boston:
This pastel of Maizeroy is one of a number painted by Manet between the year of 1880 and his death in 1883 when he was forced by paralysis to take to a wheel chair. Manet not only used the pastel because it was more convenient, but also because it permitted him to experiment with his theories in the rendering of light and shade and to obtain a general effect of luminosity.
