Manet, the Man who Invented Modern Art

Manet, the Man who Invented Modern Art

Take the opportunity to pass a cultural stay in Paris and discover the “Manet, the Man who Invented Modern Art” exhibition in Orsay museum.

More than 200 paintings, drawings and photographs, this exhibition tries to explore in another way the modernity of Edouard Manet (1832-1883) and highlights the historical situation around him, including the reaffirmed legacy of Romanticism, the impact of his contemporaries and the changes in the media at the time.

Manet was also Modern in the way he challenged the ancient masters from Fra Angelico to Velazquez. This exhibition takes another look at the many links that the painter resolutely created and rejected within both public and political spheres.

This is the first major exhibition devoted to Manet in France since the memorable 1983 exhibition at the Galeries Nationales du Grand Palais, organised by Françoise Cachin, former director of the Musée d’Orsay.
Open every day except Monday s from 9.30am to 6pm, late night on Thursdays until 9.45pm closed
