Édouard Manet (French, 1832–1883)
In the Conservatory, 1879

In the Conservatory portrays Édouard Manet’s friends the Guillemets, the owners of a clothing shop in Paris. The lush scene is full of tension as the fashionable woman looks away from her husband, while their hands, adorned with wedding rings, are close together but do not touch. Manet painted scenes of modern life in the nineteenth century, creating a bridge from realism to impressionism. This artwork was exhibited at the Paris Salon in 1879.
