  • Yale marks 150th anniversary of Manet’s landmark paintings

    In 1863 artist Edouard Manet painted two landmark works, “Dejeuner sur l’herbe” and “Olympia,” which confounded traditional painting conventions and ushered in the movement known as Modernism. This year marks the 150th anniversary of Manet’s masterworks, and the Yale School of Art and Department of the History of Art are honoring the occasion with an exhibition and conference.
