Humanity's relationship with the sea is both a surrender to mystery and a struggle for mastery -- not unlike the dramatic and brilliant paintings of Edouard Manet (1832-1883). Manet spent time in his youth as a sailor, and the ever-changing play of wind, light, and boats across the water fascinated him throughout his life. Manet and the Sea presents for the first time a fascinating look at this little-known but significant aspect of the master's work and its place in the evolution of marine painting, also including artists ranging from the Dutch masters to Claude Monet and the other Impressionists. The Chicago Tribune called the exhibition is "beautiful" and "exploratory."
