Paint alterations made evident with x-radiographs

No preparatory drawing is visible on these canvases. Rather than sketching any changes on paper or drawing directly on the canvas as many artists would, Manet tended to develop or alter his composition in the paint layer itself. Sometimes such changes are hidden, and sometimes they are visible to the naked eye. These alterations often are made evident by x-radiography.
