This is the first major exhibition in the UK devoted to the portraiture of Edouard Manet, spanning his entire career. The exhibition will bring together great works from across Europe, Asia, and the United States. Cinemagoers will see exclusive behind-the-scenes moments of the Royal Academy's exhibition preparation—moments usually hidden from view—and experience a detailed, superbly crafted biography of Manet and nineteenth-century Paris.

The three-part series continues on August 11 with Edvard Munch 150, celebrating the 150th anniversary of the artist's birth. The screening is co-hosted by the National Museum and the Munch Museum, both in Oslo. The final screening on October 20, Vermeer and Music—The Art of Love and Leisure, takes place at the National Gallery in London, where audiences will see a unique perspective on the masterpieces of Johannes Vermeer. Each event screening, hosted by art historian Tim Marlow, ventures beyond the gallery with exclusive behind-the-scenes footage.
