Experience Manet’s “A Bar at the Folies-Bergère” Like Never Before

First exhibited in the Paris Salon of 1882, A Bar at the Folies-Bergère was French artist Édouard Manet’s culminating masterpiece, created only a year before the artist’s death at the age of 51.

Fashionable figures, alluring painterly surfaces, cropped views, oblique reflections, and ambiguous doubling summon up a scene of Parisian nightlife that is both compellingly mysterious and insistently modern.  Over the years, Manet’s captivating and iconic painting has been reproduced in almost every art history textbook ever published and attracted thousands upon thousands of visitors to London’s Courtauld Gallery.

Launched this past November, WoofbertVR’s first virtual reality app allows you to skip the long airplane trip and museum lines and head straight to the Courtauld’s Wolfson Room to see this and other important Impressionist works firsthand.

WbVR users have already discovered with delight that they cannot only navigate this gallery space at will, but can also move in close enough to see the actual brushwork, the very texture and quality of the paint.

Now, with the latest WoofbertVR app update, visitors can actually STEP INTO the painting and be absolutely immersed within its spectacular environment.  

Manet froze a moment in time with A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.  WbVR invites you to step into that moment.  Try our new app update and explore a completely innovative, interactive, and perspective-shifting experience of place and time.
