Depicting the Paris of his day through portraits of family, friends, fellow artists, men of letters, actors, actresses, singers and models, Edouard Manet captured the nineteenth-century urban experience making “Modern Life” a legitimate subject for art. His handling of paint and subject , shocking at first, established him as the quintessential painter of modernity. We study the influence of Velazquez, parallels in the work of Renoir and his brilliant moves in the competition with photography.

Kerrin Meis taught art history at SFSU for ten years, and she currently teaches for the OLLI programs at Dominican University and UC Berkeley. She leads study tours in Europe. Her Book Passage classes have been big favorites for years.
