ARTH 4459 The World of Edouard Manet (Spring: 3 )
Manet stands as the pivot between the past, contemporary Paris, and the future; he determines the course of Modern Art. We will consider how and why he achieved importance, his paradoxical position as avant-garde artist and haute-bourgeois dandy, his regard for past masters, and his relation to contemporary writers, the Impressionists, and other artists.
