Edouard Manet, Amazon, detail

A. Bregman posts installation photos from Manet, the Man who Invented Modernity at the Musée d'Orsay on view through July 17, 2011. Bregman writes: "The exhibition is designed around 12 questions, as based in stylistic elements and evolution of the artist's life," that demonstrate how "[Manet's] vision of modernity was cemented with the revelation of reality."
