Manet's Incident in a Bullfight

Manet's haunting Dead Toreador (National Gallery of Art, Washington, D.C.) and the Frick's Bullfight were once part of a larger canvas painted in 1864 exhibited as An Incident in the Bullring. The lecturer reconstructed the painting's original composition, analyzed its historical and pictorial sources, and related it to representations of bullfighting and other works by Manet with Spanish subjects. He also speculated on its implicit political content.
