Download Passes for a Virtual Tour of 'Manet: Portraying Life'

This eagerly awaited exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts, London, will be the first ever major exhibition in the UK devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet. Spanning the entire career of this enigmatic, and at times controversial, artist, Manet: Portraying Life will bring together great works from across Europe, Asia and the US. Manet's engagement with portraiture has never been explored in an exhibition form, despite it forming around half of his artistic output. Manet painted his family, friends and the literary, political and artistic figures of his day, giving life not only to his subjects but also to Parisian society of the time.

The exhibition consists of more than 50 works; including masterpieces like "Music in the Tuileries," "Olympia," "Luncheon on the Grass" & "The Railway." Also featured are portraits of Manet's most frequent sitter, his wife Suzanne Leenhoff, luminaries of the period Antonin Proust, Émile Zola and Stéphane Mallarmé, and scenes from everyday life revealing Manet's forward-thinking, modern approach to portraiture.

The event also reveals exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the exhibition's preparation - moments usually hidden from view - and interweaves a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris. Host Tim Marlow - with expert guests - looks at the work of one of the all-time great artists.
