Boating is an 1874 painting by French artist Édouard Manet in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.[1]

Done in oil on canvas, the painting depicts a man (believed to be Manet's brother in law, Rodolphe Leenhoff) and an unknown woman boating on the River Seine at Argenteuil in the Paris suburbs.

In the work Manet uses a delicate touch to exploit the broad planes of color and strong diagonals of Japanese prints.

The work is on view in Gallery 818.
