Convention and Invention – Morisot, Gonzalès, Cassatt: Women Painters with a Difference

26 October, 2022 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm


In the late 19th Century, unlike their male counterparts, respectable women were not at liberty to wander the streets, bars and cafés of Paris to discover modern motifs for painting. Despite these restrictions, Berthe Morisot, Eva Gonzalès and Mary Cassatt created dynamic depictions of modern life.

In her third lecture on Impressionism, Jo Rhymer will look closely at a small selection of works to consider what makes these works outstanding exemplars of modern art. Our discussion will include the innovative brushstrokes of Morisot, Gonzalès’ ambitious response to Manet, and Cassatt’s fascination with Japanese prints.
