On this day in 1832, Édouard Manet was born. ...

On this day in 1832, Édouard Manet was born. The French painter faced a great deal of rejection in his early career, like many of the founding impressionists. The French Academy disliked Manet’s abstracted painting style as well as his disregard for classical tradition. #LOOKSLOWLY at “Young Woman in a Garden.” Note Manet’s penchant for flattened surfaces, bright colors, and gestural brushwork. See the white color of the woman’s glove and scarf? That’s actually the unpainted preparation layer for the canvas! The artist intentionally left this part of the canvas unpainted––a break from artistic tradition that scandalized many about Manet’s paintings. Later, his work became pivotal to the modernist movement. 🎨 Édouard Manet. Young Woman in a Garden (Jeune femme dans un jardin), 1879

"Just as generations before us have done, it’s important that we also do our part." Great opinion piece from Evelina Bodon and Felicia Harris about getting involved within our communities.

    Most neighborhood volunteers are seniors. The time is now for millennials to get involved | Opinion
    These public spaces are gems and can be part of what makes living in a neighborhood so attractive; and they have only survived for so long because of the commitment of those few neighbors, many seniors, who are dedicated volunteers, advocates and members of friends of groups or recreation advisory councils.

Paul Cézanne (1839-1906) painted “The Card Players” from 1890–1892. The one that hangs at the Barnes is the largest of several versions completed by the artist. Speaking to the might and strength inherent in Cézanne’s work, Dr. Barnes wrote: “The essential and fundamental effect of Cézanne’s form, in its best estate, is the quality of power, rendered in legitimate painting terms. Perhaps no other painter has so successfully made power the keynote of his design; not even Michelangelo…” Look for this monumental work in the main room of our Collection Gallery. 🎨 Paul Cézanne.
