Manet: Portraying LifeThe Royal Academy of Arts presents the first major UK exhibition of portraiture by the famous French painter Edouard Manet, featuring more than 50 paintings together with pastels and photographs which provide an insight into Parisian society in the 19th century. By arranging portraits thematically, into family, friends, status portraits and genre scenes, the exhibition examines the relationship between Manet's portrait painting and his scenes of modern life. Highlights include The Luncheon which depicts Leon, the son of Manet's wife; Mme Manet in the Conservatory; Berthe Morisot with a Bouquet of Violets, on loan from the Musee d'Orsay in Paris; and an early version of Le Dejeuner sur l'herbe. See all these and more by booking tickets for Edouard Manet at the Royal Academy of Arts. His 1862 painting, Music in the Tuileries Gardens, is another hugely popular work and was his first major piece depicting modern city life; the band plays to a fashionable crowd - a gathering of Manet's literary friends and theatrical acquaintances.
