Modern Art: Lecture 4 (2/19/2012) Manet Nymph Surprised, 1861 Allusion to bible’s Susanna: surprised while bathing by elders Manet takes out the elders, so the audience = the perpetrators Role of vision in painting Gaze looks back at the viewer- breaks storytelling function Breaking of space to bring it into the space of the real Manet The Balcony, 1868-69 Contradiction of gazes Gaze breaking space to break the space itself Prioritizing sight Inconsistencies QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture. ^^Manet Luncheon on the Grass^^ Gazes in contradiction Cites history of art in new way Color as opposed to line; color answers to light- can’t touch it, only for the eyes About every genre; summed up in a new gesture while also breaking them down Moment of vision, about vision Painting now more about painting than history and storytelling- about the medium itself Medium specific, self-criticality
