Among the masterpieces on display are The Balcony (1868) by Manet, an icon of the Parisian bourgeoisie of the late-19th century; Jeantaud, Linet et Lainé (1871) by Degas, which focuses on the faces of three young thoughtful industrial Parisians; and The Swing (1876) by Renoir, one of his first works where the light becomes the portagonist of the painting.
