Manet: Models, Portraits, and "La Vie Moderne"


Manet's friendship with Isabelle Lemonnier, the model for the bold portrait at the Dallas Museum of Art, led to an extraordinary series of formal and informal portraits of her in the latter phase of his career. Dr. Nancy Locke, Associate Professor of Art History, Penn State University, will highlight the role of portraiture in Manet’s modern-life project and will offer fresh insights into the panache of the Museum’s remarkable portrait of Isabelle Lemonnier.
