A Bar at the Folies-Bergere

In a bar, a young woman leans against the counter full of bottles of champagne. Parisians flocked to the Folies-Bergère music hall to see circus acts and ballet, and to pick up prostitutes. Manet focuses on Suzon, one of the barmaids, showing her aloof from the crowd, lost in thought as she serves a customer. Manet mocked up the bar in his studio, painting the background from memory; the relationship between the reflections in the mirror and the objects and model in the background is inconsistent In the painting "A Bar at the Folies-Bergère", the artist Edouard Manet painted his own reflection in the mirror behind the bar. The artist himself is the man on the right looking to the waitress.
