This gallery is devoted to major figure paintings by the progenitors of modernism. Manet, Degas, and Fantin were considered to be the harbingers of The New Painting, also known as Impressionism. The Metropolitan—the first museum in the world to own Manet's work (1889)—has the most important collection of large-scale painting by these masters outside of France.
