Episode No. 48 of The Modern Art Notes Podcast features curators Lawrence Nichols and Gary Tinterow.
The program spotlights “Manet: Portraying Life,” a new exhibition of Manet’s portraits opening Sunday at the Toledo Museum of Art. It is the first exhibition devoted to Manet’s portraiture. Toledo organized the exhibition in association with the Royal Academy in London, where it will travel next.
Nichols is the senior curator of European and American painting and sculpture before 1900 at Toledo. Tinterow is the former head of 19th-century, modern and contemporary art at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and now the director of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. While at the Met, Tinterow was the curator of the 2002-03 exhibition “Manet/Velazquez: The French Taste for Spanish Painting.”
