Coronation Street meets the Folies-Bergère

(This post was originally posted by Flaming Nora on the Coronation Street Blog May 2015, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Last night on Coronation Street, Ken walked into the Rovers and compared Liz behind the bar of the Rovers to a Manet painting. It was a lovely scene in a wonderful pair of episodes written by Jonathan Harvey.

The painting Ken compared Liz to was Edouard Manet's A Bar at the Folies-Bergère.  As you can see below, it works.

Gilly Walsh, Corrie make up artist on twitter reminded us that we've seen a similiar picture before featuring a Coronation Street character.   The picture of Becky Granger in the same pose was done as a cover for the Radio Times.
