The Old Musician, Manet (ASL)

Manet’s tableau reflects on the isolated nature of modern life in this depiction of a group of disparate people. The artist sympathized with the displaced and marginalized poor population, a result of the dramatic redesigning of the Paris that created the now-familiar wide, tree-lined boulevards and neoclassical buildings.
