MANET: PORTRAYING LIFE OPENING AS PART OF JOURNEYS IN ART HISTORY SERIES AT CINEMA ART THEATER
The Rehoboth Beach Film Society continues the Journeys in Art History film series which introduces the works of history’s greatest painters and provides opportunities to view blockbuster art exhibitions from galleries worldwide. In February, the series presents the revealing Exhibition on Screen film, MANET: PORTRAYING LIFE, on Tuesday, February 6 at 1:30 PM and February 27 at 1:30 pm. All screenings take place at the Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, Dartmouth Plaza (behind the Lewes Wawa).
The extremely popular exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London was the first ever retrospective devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet. Spanning this enigmatic and, at times, controversial artist’s entire career, the exhibition brought together works from across Europe, Asia and the USA, revealing Manet’s forward-thinking, modern approach to portraiture. The film gives the audience exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the exhibition’s preparation, while interweaving a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and 19th century Paris. Host Tim Marlow and special guests look at the craft of one of the all-time great artists, the ‘father of modern art’. [2013, UK, Runtime: 92 minutes, Not Rated].
