A Bar at the Folies-Bergère oil on canvas painted by Édouard Manet in 1882. The barmaid who faces us behind a counter. A group of beer and wine bottles on the counter. One of these bares Manet's signature. A bowl of oranges is positioned to the left of a group of beer and wine bottles. A glass containing two flowers sits on top of the counter in front of the bar maid. The counter edge. The bottom frame of a mirror, which takes up just under half of the background of the painting. The supposed reflection of the barmaid's back and a male customer facing her in the mirror. The crowded bar, which is believed to be a reflection in the mirror. The bar is teaming with well dressed men and women. A trapese artist dangles above them. A large crystal chandelier hangs from the ceiling. The marble counter which is in front of the barmaid. Four wine bottles and a bottle of Bass pale ale sit on top of the counter. The inclusion of this English beer is linked to anti-German sentiments following the Franco-Prussian war. A raised glass bowl of oranges sits on top of the counter. This symbolises that the barmaid is also a prostitute. A wine glass sits on top of the counter and is used as a vase for a pink and yellow flower. While it is believed that this is the reflection of the barmaid's back in the mirror, some critics argue that this is in fact the real barmaid, and that the central figure in the painting is her reflection. The gentleman customer, who has a mustache and wears a black top hat. A bouquet of flowers which is pinned to the barmaid's chest. A black choker with a yellow pendant hangs from the barmaid's neck. The barmaid faces the viewer with a melancholic expression. Her eyes gaze slightly down and to the left. She wears a black fitted jacket with a low neckline. Seven bottles sit on top of the counter. Manet's signature is on a label of a red wine bottle, which is to the furthest left.
