The Fifer is also known as "Young Flautist". It was painted in 1866 by Édouard Manet. It is currently on show in Musée d’Orsay in Paris. It features Manet's muse Victorine Meurent playing the flute. Although thought as a boy at first glance, Victorine is actually an androgynous girl in this painting. Her features have been merged with those of her prepubescent son to give this effect.

The FiferÉdouard Manet, 1866Oil on canvas
One of Manet's earlier works, this painting depicts a young flautist dressed in military uniform. Manet's works are notable for their lack of linear perspective and strong color contrast. These attributes led some to call him "The Father of Impressionism" and make comparisons to Vélazquez. Fun fact-flautists can determine what note the boy is playing just by studying the painting closely.
- Note: Prior to New Leaf, paintings did not have visual differences between forged and genuine versions. Therefore, paintings given to Blathers were fake or authentic at random.
