Édouard Manet and the Performing Arts

As a leader of the Parisian avant-garde, Édouard Manet was a debonair, charismatic and sociable man. Although spurned by the critics, Manet’s supporters in Parisian artistic circles were numerous and ardent. His brilliant portrayal of modern Paris can be seen as a reflection of his personality and interests which included literature, music, theater, dance and the opera.
