EXHIBITION: MANET – Great Art on Screen
April 11

EXHIBITION will feature the world’s foremost upcoming art exhibitions, creatively captured by / Seventh Art Productions - producers of the multi-award-winning arts biographies “In Search of …” (titles include Mozart, Beethoven, Haydn and Chopin) and broadcast via NCM Fathom Events digital network to over 250 cinemas nationwide. The events won’t just cover the exhibition’s paintings: important questions will be also asked and answered. What lies behind the exhibition creatively and technically?  What does this particular collection of paintings and objects reveal about the artist or the particular historical period? What do we learn about the presenting institution?  These will be wonderful records of extraordinary exhibitions and first-rate biographies of artists. The events will combine sensitively shot material about the artist and period, filmed both at the exhibition and on location.

More information about the show on April 11…
SYNOPSIS - This eagerly awaited exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts will be the first ever major exhibition in the UK devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet.  Spanning the entire career of this enigmatic, and at times controversial, artist, Manet: Portraying Life will bring together great works from across Europe, Asia and the USA.
Manet’s engagement with portraiture has never been explored in an exhibition form, despite it forming around half of his artistic output. Manet painted his family, friends and the literary, political and artistic figures of his day, giving life not only to his subjects but also to Parisian society of the time.

The exhibition consists of more than 50 works; including masterpieces like Music in the Tuileries, Olympia, Luncheon on the Grass The Railway. Also featured are portraits of Manet’s most frequent sitter, his wife Suzanne Leenhoff, luminaries of the period Antonin Proust, Émile Zola and Stéphane Mallarmé, and scenes from everyday life revealing Manet’s forward-thinking, modern approach to portraiture.

The event also reveals exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the exhibition’s preparation – moments usually hidden from view – and interweaves a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris.  Host Tim Marlow - with expert guests - looks at the work of one of the all-time great artists.

Manet is my favorite! Although I like the Scream a lot too. It's the colors and the compositions that I prefer from Manet

Scream is my favorite, it invokes emotion in me, alienation, fear, death. It makes me feel the raw emotion of it. And that is why it is my favorite.

I do have a soft spot for Manet's "punk Rock alla French salon" style- He was a rebel in his place and time. But Munch work is heavy with emotion and life so I would have to say he's my favorite!
