Impressionism captured the world's imagination in the late nineteenth century and remains with us today. Portraying the dynamic effects of modernity, impressionist artists revolutionized the arts and the wider culture. Impressionism transformed the very pattern of reality, introducing new ways to look at and think about the world and our experience of it. Its legacy has been felt in many major contributions to popular and high culture, from cubism and early cinema to the works of Zadie Smith and W. G. Sebald, from advertisements for Pepsi to the observations of Oliver Sacks and Malcolm Gladwell. Yet impressionism's persistence has also been a problem, a matter of inauthenticity, superficiality, and complicity in what is merely "impressionistic" about culture today. Jesse Matz considers these two legacies—the positive and the negative—to explain impressionism's true contemporary significance. As Lasting Impressions moves through contemporary literature, painting, and popular culture, Matz explains how the perceptual role, cultural effects, and social implications of impressionism continue to generate meaning and foster new forms of creativity, understanding, and public engagement.

Liebst du es, neue Geschäftskontakte zu knüpfen, um deiner Karriere auf die Sprünge zu helfen? Ist das Erwachsensein für dich eine aufregende neue Herausforderung, der du ohne Weiteres gewachsen bist? Bäh! Verschwinde bitte. Für alle anderen gibt es diese einzigartigen, lässig gezeichneten Comics von Sarah Andersen. In Erwachsen werd ich (vielleicht) später zeigt die junge New Yorker Künstlerin, wie wir an schönen Wochenenden unsere ganze Zeit im Internet vergeuden, wie wir uns schicke Kleidung kaufen und trotzdem wieder zum abgenutzten Lieblingspulli greifen oder wie wir manchmal einfach liegen bleiben anstatt unsere Lebenspläne in Angriff zu nehmen. Die herrlich erfrischenden Comics sind ein Spiegel unserer Weigerung, erwachsen zu werden. Ein Buch, das vielen jungen Frauen aus der Seele spricht.

Bringing forth fresh perspectives on Manet's art by established scholars, this volume places this compelling and elusive artist's painted oeuvre within a broader cultural context, and links his artistic preoccupations with literary and musical currents. Rather than seeking consensus on his art through one methodology, or focusing on one crucial work or period, this collection investigates the range of Manet's art in the context of his time and considers how his vision has shaped subsequent interpretations. Specific essays explore the relationship between Manet and Whistler; Emile Zola's attitude toward the artist; Manet's engagement with moral and ethical questions in his paintings; and the heritage of Charles Baudelaire and Clement Greenberg in critical responses to Manet. Through these and other analyses, this volume illuminates the scope of Manet's career, and indicates the crucial position the artist held in generating a modernist avant-garde aesthetic.

Ab Ende Mai 2016 zeigt die Hamburger Kunsthalle aus Anlass ihrer Wiedereröffnung eine umfassende Ausstellung zu Édouard Manet (1832–1883), einem der bedeutendsten Wegbereiter der modernen Malerei, der die Kunst im 19. Jahrhundert wie kein Zweiter revolutioniert hat. Das Thema der Ausstellung, Manets Blicke, zeigt das Werk des Künstlers in einer neuen Perspektive. Seine Gemälde, die schon im 19. Jahrhundert in den Pariser Salon-Ausstellungen Publikumsmagneten waren, lösten wahre Proteststürme aus. Das lag vor allem an seiner malerischen Strategie, mit bisher unbekannter Direktheit ein spannungsvolles Verhältnis zwischen den Personen im Bild und den Betrachtern herzustellen. Diese bisweilen direkte Ansprache des Betrachters fasziniert bis heute. Manets Gemälde verdeutlichen, wie sich das Sehen in der Öffentlichkeit der modernen Metropole Paris seit den 1860er-Jahren unaufhaltsam verändert – ein Wandel, den Manet und seine Zeitgenossen in ihrer Kunst pointiert zum Thema machten. Mit hochkarätigen Leihgaben aus internationalen Museen bietet die Ausstellung die einmalige Gelegenheit, den ganzen Manet vom Frühwerk bis zum Spätwerk zu sehen – eine Chance, die es in Deutschland seit Jahrzehnten nicht gegeben hat.0Der umfangreiche Katalog umfasst Essays von Michael Diers, Dorothee Hansen, Joachim Kaak, Matthias Krüger, Michael Lüthy und Barbara Wittmann sowie Beiträge weiterer Autorinnen und Autoren aus der Hamburger Kunsthalle. 0Exhibition: Hamburger Kunsthalle, Hamburg, Germany (27.05-04.09.2016).

“How did I become an impersonator? Perhaps my mother was conceived by a Zerox machine!” So, how did a kid from Ottawa, Canada, growing up in the ’50s become an impressionist? No one in our family had ever been in show business. No one ever had “show biz” yearnings. My father was a doctor. My mother was a housewife. So where did my desire to become an impressionist come from? I’ve often asked myself this question. I didn’t know the answer, but I did love the movies. As a boy, I would go every weekend, sometimes staying to see the show twice. Just going to the movies and getting so involved in the storytelling and the characters made me want to be that person up on the screen, never dreaming that I could turn it into a career. The glory days of Hollywood and their icons, like no other, have remained as indelible images in our hearts and minds for decades. I, like many, idolized these giants of the screen and comedy, but was so fortunate to have had the opportunity to meet, work with, and get to know many of them along the way during my career. From the genius of Jack Benny, the unmatched humor of George Burns, the debonair, handsome Cary Grant, the unforgettable John Wayne, the king of late night hosts Johnny Carson, and the former actor-turned-president Ronald Reagan to name a few. In this gem of a book are insights into the likes of many of these great people I’ve had the privilege and fortune to meet and imitate, shining new light on our beloved stars. This is really not a biography, but more of a humorous glimpse of the people I’ve impersonated and some of the funny stories that happened along the way.
