Description

This three-session class will look at lesser-known women artists in the 19th century. It was a time when it was easier for women to get some training, especially for young middle-class women who were expected to be accomplished, but the path for an aspiring professional artist was still difficult. Many British women strove for recognition. American women sculptors – “the white marmorean flock” –made a name for themselves in Rome. A Salon for Women Painters provided a separate but unequal venue for women in France, while the Impressionists provided a place for some women working outside the mainstream. (Cassatt and Morisot, the subject of a previous class, will be mentioned in passing.).  Register for this class if you will only be viewing via Zoom. You must have a computer/tablet/phone with audio and video capability.
