Edouard Manet: A Bar at the Folies-Bergère
Edouard Manet's painting A Bar at the Folies-Bergère of 1882 is one of the most treasured possessions of the Courtauld Collection. We are invited to engage with a young barmaid at work in a fashionable Parisian establishment. A gentleman waits to be served whilst in the background spectators watch the night's entertainments. All seems to be well - but is it? What sort of establishment was this? Who frequented it?
Lizzie Darbyshire - graduate of the Courtauld Institute of Art - explores the many facets of this iconic painting and guarantees that you will never look at it in the same way again.
