Women Artists in 19th Century France £4

Gail-Nina Anderson Lecture Series - Women Artists 2/3

France in the 19th century saw a new wave of opportunities for the female artist, within both established styles and also such avant-garde innovations as Impressionism. Rosa Bonheur, Marie Bracquemond, Eva Gonzalès, Berthe Morisot and the American Mary Cassatt all produced and exhibited work that challenged the expectations of what a woman might achieve, exploring new techniques (including print-making), styles and innovative influences.

The final lecture in the series is:

Monday 18th June, 6pm - Woman Artists in Victorian Britain
