Image for Facingness meets Mindedness: Édouard Manet’s Luncheon in the Studio and The Balcony

Facingness meets Mindedness: Édouard Manet’s Luncheon in the Studio and The Balcony

Oct 26, 2018
12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Description

During the summer and fall of 1868, Edouard Manet painted two remarkable pictures – the Luncheon in the Studio, today in the Neue Pinakothek in Munich, and The Balcony, in the Musée d’Orsay, Paris. Both pictures have long been puzzling to commentators: Manet’s paintings have often struck art critics and indeed ordinary viewers as almost defiantly unintelligible in narrative or dramatic terms, and that is true with a vengeance of the Luncheon and The Balcony. In this lecture, Michael Fried offers a detailed analysis of both pictures, relating them to Manet’s enterprise generally and also to the particular historical moment of their creation.

Michael Martin Fried is a modernist art critic and art historian was born in New York City. He has a B.A. from Princeton University and a Ph.D. in Fine Arts (History of Art) from Harvard University. From 1968 to 1975 he taught at Harvard, and in 1975 he moved to Johns Hopkins University where he became the J. R. Herbert Boone Professor of Humanities and the History of Art.
