Jeff Wall, Picture For Women, 1979
The artist’s comments on this piece via MoMA:

Pictures for Women is a “remake” of Manet’s picture. The Bar at the Folies-Bergere had really impressed me. I’d seen it repeatedly in the Courtauld Gallery in London when I was a student. I wanted to comment on it, to analyze it in a new picture, to try to draw out of it its inner structure, that famous positioning of figures, male and female, in an everyday working situation which was also a situation of spectacularity, that regime of distraction and entertainment which Manet dealt with.

Marcel Duchamp was born today in 1887. The title of this artwork is an instruction to the viewer: To Be Looked at (from the Other Side of the Glass) with One Eye, Close to, for Almost an Hour. The experience is said to produce a hallucinatory effect.
