Have you ever thought to hold your own exhibitions? You never know... you could become the next Manet. When excluded again from the Salon exhibition, Manet borrowed from his inheritance, built his own little pavilion and set up his own show.
With over 28,000 francs he displayed over 50 of his own works. The artist's pavilion attracted little attention except for the few that came to jeer at Le Dejeuner sur l'Herb. Nevertheless, he persevered and would be amazed to see where his art is admired today and even more so that we finally 'get it'! One of my best shows was at a hairdresser's... where could you set up your own show? .
