Manet:: Portraying Life
LONDON  •  Royal Academy of Arts  •  Advance booking strongly recommended

Born in Paris in 1832, Manet was very aware as an artist of the diversity of his city and the metamorphoses it was undergoing. A thoughtful and sympathetic observer, he showed the disappearance of a number of small trades, the darker aspects of the city – the poverty of the vagrants, the invalids, the sordid prostitution – or made the places they frequented the subject of his paintings: theatres, the Paris opera, cabarets, bars and cafés, etc.
