A look at a changing time
The eagerly anticipated major exhibition featuring the portraits of Edouard Manet will open in October at the Toledo Museum of Art, and to help build anticipation, the TMA will first present "Prints and Authors From the Time of Manet," a special exhibition in the Works on Paper Gallery. Drawn from the museum's collection, the show features prints, photographs and illustrated books by contemporaries of Manet, giving a vivid tour of a time of rapid change in the visual arts. Artists like Renoir, Whistler and many lesser-known names led the way toward an emphasis on everyday experience. September 13-January 13, 2013.
