Patterned after elements in landscapes by Peter Paul Rubens, the present painting gives currency to Delacroix’s recommendation to Manet: “Look at Rubens, draw inspiration from Rubens, copy Rubens. Rubens was God.” Manet and his future wife, Suzanne Leenhoff, are the couple at lower right dressed in seventeenth-century costume and posed like Rubens and his wife in the Flemish painter’s Park of the ChÂ© teau de Steen (Kunsthistorisches Museum, Vienna). As Manet had concealed his relationship with Suzanne from his father, who died in September 1862, it is likely that FishingÂ© ï¿½a variation on a wedding portraitÂ© ï¿½was made between then and their marriage in October 1863.
