Manet and Degas: Making the World Modern/An Art Talk with Janet Cohen Mandel
Édouard Manet and Edgar Degas, born only two years apart, were friends, rivals, and at times, antagonists who worked to define modern painting in France. Both artists portrayed contemporary life candidly, sometimes shocking the art world with their highly original visions. Join art lecturer Janet Cohen Mandel for this two-part talk on Zoom (December 22 and 29), which will acquaint you with the lives of both artists and prepare you well to enjoy the Metropolitan Museum of Art's extraordinary exhibition, Manet/Degas, closing January 7th. We will see amazing paintings by these modern masters and discover how Manet's and Degas' artistic objectives and approaches overlapped and diverged.
