An exhibition of famous artists will open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art
On September 24, the “Manet/Degas” exhibition will open at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (Gallery 899), which will present more than 150 works by famous French artists. The exhibition will last until January 7.
This installation takes us through one of the most significant artistic dialogues in the history of modern art – the close and sometimes turbulent relationship between Edouard Manet and Edgar Degas.
Manet (b. 1832) and Degas (b. 1834), born just two years apart, were friends, rivals, and sometimes antagonists who created the Impressionist movement in France. The exhibition chronicles their careers through their work, exploring how their artistic goals and approaches simultaneously intersected and diverged.
Through more than 150 paintings and graphic works, “Manet/Degas” will show us in new ways the interaction of these two artists in the context of family relationships, friendships and intellectual circles that influenced their artistic and professional choices.
