French Impressionist Women: Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, et al
Tuesday, July 16 | 1:00-2:30pm
For many decades, the four Women Impressionists: Berthe Morisot, MaryCassatt, Eva Gonzalès, Marie Bracquemond were treated with either pronounced ambivalence or outright hostility. They had few public exhibitions. However, these women—three French artists and one American artist living in Paris—were as innovative as their male counterparts—Edouard Manet, Edgar Degas, and Claude Monet. While they have diverse biographies, each of these artists overcame daunting obstacles to contribute to the development of Impressionism.
