Associate Curator Emily Beeny CC’05, GSAS ‘16, brings the J. Paul Getty Museum’s Manet and Modern Beauty exhibition to your living room with this engaging talk that will bring you back to your ArtHum days.

Manet’s “late” pictures—of stylish women and bouquets, of suburban gardens and Parisian cafes—put a smiling face on a period of acute physical suffering. Painted during the artist’s long and painful illness, these pictures sparkle with an insistent—perhaps even defiant—sense of life. Read Beeny’s behind the scenes look at the exhibition:
