Edouard Manet: A Bar at the Folies-Bergère
Lecturer: Lizzy Darbyshire
Edouard Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère of 1882 is one of the most treasured possessions of the Courtauld Collection. In this picture all seems well - but is it? Is this a straightforward representation of the Folies-Bergère or is Manet playing with out expectations? The lecture examines the work of Edouard Manet and delves deeper into the many different facets of this iconic and endlessly fascinating painting.
