IMPRESSIONISM. EDOUARD MANET

"Bar at the Folies Bergere", 1882 - London, Courtald Institute Galleries

Manet's paintings of cafe scenes are direct observations of social life in nineteenth century Paris, and this stunning and complex canvas is one of his most famous masterpieces. Note that the woman in the reflection should appear directly behind the image of the woman who is facing us. Is this a terrible mistake by Manet, or is the artist expressing a sort of "double reality" in this famous work?
