Manet's paintings were both celebrated and criticised for the use of extreme contrast. He often painted dark silhouettes against a pale background or the profile of a black suit against a white dress.

In making monochrome drawings of the nude model, we will experiment with collage and a range of drawing tools to create dynamic black-and-white compositions.
