A Bar at the Folies-Bergere is oil on canvas painting by Eduardo Manet in 1882. The
dimensions are 96 cm (38 in) × 130 cm (51 in) and the artwork can be found at Courtauld
Gallery, London. The work was painted and displayed at the Paris Salon back in 1882. It is
considered Manet’s last major work.
A Bar at the Folies-Bergere represents a contemporary scene in detail something that

between 1498 and 1499 and is located at the St. Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City. The work
shows Mary holding Jesus on her lap after the crucifixion. It has a northern origin theme
