Manet and the Women
Hi, I’m Kristen Lee Sergeant – I’m a singer/songwriter based in NYC, and I’m captivated by the art of Éduoard Manet. I’m currently creating an album of songs based on his paintings – here are some demos of a few for you to enjoy (whether or not you’re attending the Manet/Degas exhibit at the Met.) If you like the tunes and want to help this project along, I would love to tell you more here.
SONG: A Woman Alone
The Ham, ca. 1875 -80
SONG: A Plum
This one isn’t at the Met, it’s in London. But how could I resist?
Would you like to hear these songs arranged for jazz quartet and string quartet? How about songs for “Olympia” and a few other choice subjects? This is only the beginning – your support can help bring this project to life here.
