Art history lecturer Linda Blair continues her series “A New Look at Impressionism,” 7:30 p.m., Monday Jan. 18 at Athenaeum Music & Arts Library, 1008 Wall St. Although Manet is called the “Father of Impressionism,” he was not an Impressionist at all, but an extraordinarily inventive (almost revolutionary) artist.
