Worcester Art Museum will celebrate the arrival of Édouard Manet’s famous painting “The Dead Toreador” with a Spanish-themed party on Saturday, September 25, from 7 to 10 pm. The painting will be on view till March 31.
In the gallery, visitors will view the painting and the assistant curator Nancy Burns will explain how Manet’s fascination with Spanish art and culture inspired him to create the acclaimed painting of the slain bullfighter.
“The National Gallery in Washington, D.C., has generously agreed to loan to WAM one of its French masterpieces, Manet’s ‘The Dead Toreador.’ This is a thrilling opportunity for all of us to learn about one of art history’s greatest masters, as well as to take a closer look at the Worcester Museum’s rich holdings in Spanish and French art,” said museum director Jim Welu.
Admission to the party is $30 for members and $40 for nonmembers and can be made online until 5 pm on Wednesday, September 22, at www.worcesterart.org or by calling 508-799-4406, extension 3123.
The museum is at 55 Salisbury Street. For more information, www.worcesterart.org or 508-799-4406.
