Towards the end of his life, Manet was increasingly drawn towards still life. Here is shown a rabbit hanging outside between a window and a trellis. It is one of four decorative panels which he painted in the summer of 1881 near Versailles. That year Manet finally received a medal from the Salon and was made a Chevalier of the Légion d'honneur. This subject is traditional, but its free technique is assertively Impressionist.
