Event Description

As part of the cycle: "Women Artists from the 18th to the 20th Century”

By Gilles Genty, art historian 

 

The 19th century saw the rise of workshops and schools reserved for women. At the same time, the emergence of new social strata gradually replaced the royal patronage. If Félicie de Fauveau was the protégé of the Duchess of Berry, if Marie d'Orléans blossomed in the circle of her father, King Louis-Philippe, Princess Mathilde became a great figure of Napoleon III's Empire; in her salon, all the great artists of the 19th century, from Mérimée to Flaubert, would meet. The years 1830-1860 also saw the blossoming of new horizons; women artists specialized in miniature painting, portraits on ivory, painting on porcelain, etc., and their knowledge was prized by the most prestigious factories. Rosa Bonheur, protected by the Empress Eugenie, freely asserted her personal life.
