Don't miss this opportunity to view the first exhibition ever to explore the last years of Édouard Manet's short life. Manet and Modern Beauty highlights a less familiar and more intimate side of this celebrated artist’s work. Stylish portraits, luscious still lifes, delicate pastels, and watercolors, vivid café and garden scenes convey Manet’s elegant social world and reveal his growing fascination with fashion, flowers, and the contemporary trappings of femininity.
