Manet/Degas at Musée d'Orsay, Paris
Posted in OUR CULTURAL NEWS
Édouard Manet (1832-1883) and Edgar Degas (1834-1917) were both key players in the new painting of the 1860s-80s. This exhibition, which brings together the two painters in the light of their contrasts, forces us to take a new look at their real complicity. It shows what was heterogeneous and conflicting in pictorial modernity, and reveals the value of the Degas collection where Manet took a greater place after his death.
