Which is which: Monet or Manet?

It’s easy to confuse them; they were French, they were painters, they lived at the same time, and they were friends. If like me, you have trouble remembering “which is which” here are Monet and Manet in a nutshell.

Édouard  Manet                                                                             
23 January 1832 – 30 April 1883
 Oscar-Claude  Monet
                                                      14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926 
 
one of the first 19th-century artists to paint modern life,
a pivotal figure in the transition from Realism to Impressionism 
 a founder of French Impressionist painting
 
friends with the Impressionists Degas,
Renoir, Sisley, Cezanne, and Pissaro
 organized with Renoir, Pissaro, and Sisley
the Societe anonyme des artistes peintres, scupteurs et graveurs, as
an alternative to the Salon de Paris,
exhibited with Morisot, Renoir, Degas, Pissaro, and Cezanne
 
his early works caused great controversy and served as rallying points for the young painters who would create Impressionism. Today, these are considered watershed paintings that mark the genesis of modern art. 
              the term “Impressionism” is derived from the title of his
painting Impression Sunrise
 
painted portraits, Paris street scenes, café and social scenes, war scenes
  painted garden scenes, land and seascapes,  portraits, best known for his paintings of water lilies
 
in April 1883, his left foot was amputated  because of
gangrene,  he died eleven days later in Paris at
the age of 51 and is buried in the Passy Cemetery in Paris.
                                                              died of lung cancer on 5 December 1926 at the age of 86 and is buried in  the Giverny church cemetery
