Edouard Manet took on the conservative art world in Paris by painting modern life as opposed to “accepted” subjects. By challenging the French academic system Manet inspired Morisot, Renoir, Monet and other Impressionists. In this lecture, learn about important works in Manet's oeuvre including Luncheon on the Grass, The Balcony and A Bar at the Folies-Bergère. 
Art historian Jeff Mishur presents this lecture. Mishur is co-owner of Art Excursions, a company that provides private guiding in Chicago; boutique art and culture tours in the United States; and lectures on a wide range of subjects. A popular speaker about art historical and travel topics, he has his M.A. in Art History from Northern Illinois University and has taught at the university level for many years.
