The Politics of Vision: Essays on Nineteenth-Century Art and Society

By Linda Nochlin | Go to book overview
in her catalogue entry on Masked Ball at the Opera in Manet 1832- 1883 ( New York, 1983), no. 138, pp. 349-52. This catalogue entry is a rich source of information and documentation about the painting, as are Theodore Reff, Manet and Modern Paris ( Washington, D.C., 1982), no. 39, p. 122, and Denis Rouart and Daniel Wildenstein, Edouard Manet: Catalogue raisonné (Lausanne, 1975), I, no. 216. For another interpretation of the work see Alain de Leiris, "Manet and El Greco: The 'Opera Ball,'" Arts, September 1980, pp. 95-99. For studies of Manet Masked Ball published after the completion of this article, see Melissa Hall, "Manet's Ball at the Opera: A Matter of Response", Rutgers Art Review, Spring, 1984, and John Hutton, "The Clown at the Ball: Manet's Masked Ball at the Opera," The Oxford Art Journal 10:2 ( 1987):76-94. For the theme of the masked ball from the viewpoint of cultural history, see Ann Ilan-Alter, "Je te connais, beau masque . . ." ( Women, Sex and Class at the Bal de L'Opéra, 1830- 1873). Paper presented at the American Historical Association, December 1985.

Julius Meier-Graefe, Edouard Manet ( Munich, 1912), p. 216. Meier-Graefe also maintained that the painting was "ein Stück, das ein Ganzes ergibt." His analysis of the work (pp. 215-18), though brief, is brilliant.
