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

Body/figure normally tells stories- central language of art Refused from Salon due to the reality that this wouldn’t ever happen in the space of the real Victorine’s body doesn’t cohere; refuses to cohere with form No nipples; elbow very much exaggerated Gesture doesn’t interact with the figures in the painting Body’s representation- inconsistent for Manet’s work Body holds extremes of both finish and unfinish QuickTimeª and a decompressor are needed to see this picture.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
