The MET Fifth Avenue, The Tisch Galleries, Gallery 899, 2nd Floor
September 24 – January 7, 2024
Some 160 paintings and works on paper, including rarely loaned masterpieces, will illuminate the friendship and rivalry between these two giants of 19th-century French art. Born only two years apart, Édouard Manet (1832–1883) and Edgar Degas (1834–1917) were friends, rivals, and, at times, antagonists whose work shaped the development of modernist painting in France. By examining the ways in which their careers intersected and presenting their work side by side, this exhibition investigates how their artistic objectives and approaches both overlapped and diverged. Manet/Degas is organized by The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, and the Musées d’Orsay et de l’Orangerie, Paris. The exhibition is featured on The Met’s website, https://www.metmuseum.org/exhibitions/manet-degas as well as on social media using the hashtag #ManetDegas.
