A Bar at the Folies Bergere was completed in 1882, the last painting of Manet. The painter used his skilled shadow changes to depict the popular party life in Paris. Manet(1832-1883) is a famous French impressionistic painter, who has made great contributions to the development of European paintings. His main achievements are shown in figure painting, becoming the first to bring impressionism light and color to figure paintings and pioneering the impressionist painting style.

A Bar at the Folies Bergere was undoubtedly the most imaginative work that Manet had ever painted. In this painting, he used his good optical performance effect to create the illusion atmosphere around the girl behind the counter. The girl was facing the audience and the decorations, wine and flowers in a vase endowed the girl with a dreamy look. The lively banquet scene was reflected through a large mirror behind the girl. Through this mirror, we could see the girl talking with customers and many other customers sitting around the tables within the bar. All of these were vaguely shown, making people feel like in the dream. Using this dreamy light to reproduce reality was hard to achieve for anyone before or after Manet. The attractions of this girl image were she made people feel that she was one of many illusions which were full of fascinating charm. In the last few years of his life, Manet painted a large number of women portraits with charming appearance and personality. In these portraits, he neither concentrated on the performance of his characteristic style, nor showed the shading effect of impressionism, but to fulfill the general appreciation feeling.
