WHAT: Posing Modernity: The Black Model from Manet and Matisse to Today (closes February 10, 2019)
This art exhibition explores the changing modes of representation of the black figure as central to the development of modern art. ” In New York, the presentation focuses specifically on the black female figure, beginning with Edouard Manet’s 1860s portrayals of Laure, the model who posed as the maid in Olympia. In Paris, a broader and expanded treatment of the black figure begins with portaits by Marie-Guillemine Benoist and Jean-Louis André Théodore Géricault at the start of the 19th century.” For more info, visit their website. https://wallach.columbia.edu/exhibitions
