Manet... Velázquez...
The Spanish Manner in the 19th Century

Paris, Musée d'Orsay, Temporary exhibition galleries
September 17, 2002  - January 7, 2003

New York, Metropolitan Museum of Art
February 24 - June 8  2003

In the mid-nineteenth century, Velázquez supplanted Raphael as a model for the most innovative artists. But he was not the only one. Others included Murillo, Ribera, Zurbarán and, of course, Goya, who first attracted notice with his engravings and who figures as a mediator between the Spanish golden century and modern painting of his time.

The exhibition features a few of the prestigious masterpieces of Spanish painting widely admired then and that have since been dispersed. These will allow visitors to perceive the influence of such artists as Delacroix, Millet, Courbet and Degas among others, around an important series of major paintings by Manet.

Curators of the exhibition :
Geneviève Lacambre, conservateur général honoraire du Patrimoine, Musée d'Orsay and Gary Tinterow, Engelhard Curator of 19th-Century European Painting, seconded by Deborah Roldan, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New-York

Exhibition organised by the Réunion des musées nationaux, the Musée d'Orsay and the Metropolitan Museum of Art, in collaboration with the Prado museum, supported in France by ABN AMRO
