Coming to a movie theater near you MANET!!!!

Manet at the Movies(click for link)

Just like the opera from the metropolitan, they are starting to do in-depth tours of museums and special exhibitions with a behind the scenes look at  things.  It is fascinating.  Next will be Munch and then Vermeer in the fall.  Go if you have a chance, it is a great way to see something you may not be able afford otherwise. The interviews with other artists and critics and museum directors is excellent.

Some of the things I learned is that in Manet's life he painted less than 300 paintings. He used black in a way few other artists did and he was highly influenced by Velasquez and other Spanish artists.
