Don’t miss out on revolutionary opportunities, the French Salon, and slanderous art critics at the next Friends lecture.
Please join the Friends of the Institute as former Mia curator Lisa Michaux speaks on “Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot, and Marie Bracquemond and the Impressionist Exhibitions.”
Life as an artist was a challenge for women in late 19th-century France. Banned from studying at the prestigious École des Beaux-Arts until 1897, women had to find other means of artistic instruction. This lecture will examine the women of the Impressionist movement, and provide greater understanding of the social and historical factors at play in late 19th century France.
Lisa Michaux was a curator in Mia’s Prints and Drawings department from 1990 to 2010 and is now a private art consultant and dealer. She divides her time between Paris and Minnesota and loves all things French, despite her inability to master the language. Join us in welcoming her back to Mia!
