Documentary: inside our Manet exhibition

Published 13 May 2020

Originally released in cinemas, this ‘Exhibition on Screen’ film takes you back in time to visit the Royal Academy’s 2013 ‘Manet: Portraying Life’ exhibition, one of our most visited shows of all time. Take a trip to 19th-century Paris where the story of this modern master unfolds – and peep behind the scenes at the RA, as the curators prepared to tell his story in this major show.

  • EXHIBITION ON SCREEN: Manet – Portraying Life

    Manet’s portraits are rarely afforded such close attention as in this exquisitely crafted and insightful EXHIBITION ON SCREEN documentary, presented by former RA Artistic Director, Tim Marlow. Manet’s portraiture comprised about half his work, giving life on canvas to family, friends and the literary, political and artistic figures of the day. Join us as head back inside the RA exhibition that the explored this incredible work, and get to know the modern master behind it.

    More EXHIBITION ON SCREEN films are available at seventh-art.com.
