The Art Institute of Chicago, 2017
Manet Paintings and Works on Paper at the Art Institute of Chicago is the museum’s sixth volume in its online series on Impressionism and Post-Impressionism. It features works from across the artist’s career, including ten oil paintings, six drawings, two pastels on canvas, and over sixty prints. This catalogue brings together works in different media to generate fresh insights into Manet’s unique working process; these include Boy with Pitcher and the related drawing Sketches from “The Gypsies,” “The Spanish Ballet,” and “Lola de Valence” for L’Autographe au Salon de 1865. Entries from curators and conservators explore Manet’s technique and track its development across his career.
