Research undertaken in preparation for Manet: Three Paintings from the Norton Simon Museum prompted a reevaluation of the painter’s development between 1875 and 1877, a period of intense stylistic transition in his artistic trajectory. Focusing on new discoveries made about Madame Manet and The Ragpicker, works featured in the exhibition, this lecture addresses some of the surprising directions that Manet took during this time.
