BILBAO,SPAIN – The Bilbao Museum of Fine Arts
presented its 27th guest work, the piece is titled “Boy with Cherries” by
Edouard Manet (París, 1832-1883). This is a simply composed portrait, but of
great quality and shows the artist’s expression.
Manet was a
fundamental figure in the transition between Realism and Impressionism. Manet
knew how to introduce new themes and techniques which confronted him with
academic art. The Guest Work is an original Bilbao Fine Arts Museum
initiative designed to display remarkable works from other museums or
collections to enhance their understanding of artists whose works are in the
Museum collection or simply to introduce our public to artists not represented
at the museum.
