A painting from one of the world's greatest artists, worth millions, has come to Norfolk. It's by the French impressionist Manet and is the centrepiece of a new exhibition which looks at the way he influenced artists both here and at home.

Homage to Manet opens at Norwich Castle tomorrow. It also features work by Claude Monet, John Singer Sargent, Gwen John and Philip Steer, who settled in Walberswick in Suffolk in later years.

Heather Gutherie, Exhibitions' Officer said : "Manet is regarded as a forefather or a father of modern art and it's particularly through his representations of women that he was a very controversial, very notorious artist, somebody who was painting real women and that really influenced artists who were working in Britain in the late nineteenth century."
