09 Édouard Manet

The Battle of the U.S.S. "Kearsarge" and the C.S.S. "Alabama", 1864. by Édouard Manet

Philadelphia Museum of Art (John G. Johnson Collection)

This is the final week that you can see Discovering the Impressionists: Paul Durand-Ruel and the New Painting exhibition in the Philadelphia Museum of Art. It ends September 13, 2015.


馬奈 (mǎ nài) and 馬內 (mǎ nèi) are the two most common transliterations for Édouard Manet.


The problem with 馬內 (mǎ nèi) is it can be misinterpreted to mean inside a horse because 馬 (mǎ) is horse and 內 (nèi) means within.


Chinese character: 瑪Simplified Chinese: 玛
Chinese character: 內Simplified Chinese: 内
I thought of a new transliteration: 瑪內 (mǎ nèi). 瑪 (nèi) is agate or gemstone.

Most people don’t have a personal logo but everyone has a name. So a name is more important than a logo. It’s a good idea to have your own official Chinese name created by you or a naming expert so you won’t end up with the problem of other people debating what your Chinese name should be!
