About the Class
Often called the first modernist, Édouard Manet was revered by the French impressionists for his bold depictions of modern life during a time of social and political upheaval and unprecedented change to the urban landscape.
This course will focus on Manet’s depictions of modern Paris—its cafés, gardens, and glitzy new boulevards—and the fashionable women that inhabited these public spaces. We will look at drawings, pastels, oil studies, and his most ambitious works intended for the Salon.
All you need is internet access. Students will receive details about how to watch online, with related links, before classes begin. For more information, email us.
