This chapter explores Baudelaire's silence about Manet, whom he knew well and whose work has many parallels with that of the poet. It argues that his silence and implied disapproval can be explained by what the poet, who believed in the inviolable specificity of art forms, must have identified in Manet as a mismatch between medium (the oil on canvas) and an ironic or ‘agnostic’ content.
