Manet And Modern Beauty

"The first Art Institute exhibition devoted exclusively to Édouard Manet in over 50 years focuses on the transformation of the artist's style in his later years."


What to look for . . .

A Cafe-Concert.

"The artist compresses the complexity of the café life he loved so much into a single dense painting."


Jeanne (Spring).

Distilling the season of spring into a single painting.


Woman Reading.

"Manet stages his paintings like a film director. And as with any good director, he creates the world he wants the viewer to see."

"The Art Institute of Chicago explores the great paradox of the 19th-century's greatest painter: from a scandalous youth of frank nudes to flowers, fruit bowls and fashionable women."

* WTTW: Modern Manet: Beauty, Fashion And Intimacy In New Show At Art Institute.

"The show includes gems from the Art Institute collection and significant loans such as the lush masterpiece 'In the Conservatory,' borrowed exclusively for the Chicago exhibition from the State Museum in Berlin."

* Rebellious: Manet And Modern Beauty Offers Feminist Visions Of Women.

"Regarded as the father of modern art, Édouard Manet had eight years on his friend Claude Monet and was key to the transition from Realism to Impressionism. His Boating, 1874-1875 (not to be confused with Monet's The Luncheon of the Boating Party, 1881) is one of 90 pieces featured in Manet and Modern Beauty."
