TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) -- An Ohio art museum is expecting big crowds for a new exhibit featuring the works of French Impressionist Edouard Manet.

The Toledo Museum of Art will be the only U.S. museum to display the exhibit that will feature 40 paintings.

The Manet paintings will come to Toledo from museums and private collectors. The exhibit will open in October and run through the end of the year.

Museum Director Brian Kennedy tells The Blade (http://bit.ly/JzJv3J ) newspaper in Toledo that he expects the exhibit will draw tens of thousands of people to the city.

Manet's works rank among the greatest of the Impressionist movement.
