Palazzo Reale in Milan presents the exhibition Manet and Modern Paris (Manet e la Paragi Moderna) with one hundred paintings, drawings and prints by Édouard Manet and his contemporaries coming from the collection of the Musée d’Orsay in Paris.

The exhibition focuses on Manet’s observations of Paris, the city where the artist was born and died (1832-1883). He was one of the first 19th-century artists to paint modern life, and recorded scenes of bars, theatres, parks and avenues, but also of poverty, prostitution and misery.

The works by Manet are accompanied by works from contemporaries like Giovanni Boldini, Paul Cézanne, Edgar Degas, Henri Fantin-Latour, Paul Gauguin, Claude Monet, Berthe Morisot, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Paul Signac and James Tissot.
