Women Artists in Paris: A Quiet Revolution (2 parts)
Wednesdays, January 10 and 17, 2024, 7:00-8:15 pm via Zoom
Presenter: Janet Mandel, Arts Educator
(Note: Register once for both parts: January 10 and January 17. We hope that you attend both but you are welcome to attend either session as your schedule allows.)
Between 1850 and the early 20th Century, Paris was the center of the art world, and women artists from other countries in Europe arrived to join their French and American counterparts. They all took advantage of the museums, art academies, and dynamic urban life of the newly redesigned capital. Although not as celebrated as their male colleagues, these women took on modern subjects and experimented with scenes from private life, drawing upon their social differences as a source of artistic inspiration. They played a pivotal role in the emergence of both Impressionism and Symbolism. This presentation will introduce you to these determined women who overcame immense obstacles to create vibrant and innovative works.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Pennington Public Library and the Hopewell Valley Arts Council.
