EXHIBIT: Manet, the Man Who Invented Modernity
WHERE: Musée d'Orsay, Paris
WHEN: Until July 17, 2011

The title of this exhibition is no exaggeration; Edouard Manet was one of the 20th century's most recognizable and innovative artists, equals with Picasso, Cezanne, and Monet. His pieces are full of color, energy, and life, yet they retain a strong sense of balance and direction.
