Berthe Morisot, On The Lake (Sur le lac), 1884. Oil on canvas. Private Collection, Denver, CO.
Her Paris: Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism will feature more than 80 paintings by 37 women artists from across Europe and America, who had migrated to this epicenter of art to further their careers. They range from well-known artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Rosa Bonheur, to painters who are lesser-known in the United States, including Anna Ancher and Paula Modersohn-Becker.
Her Paris is organized by the American Federation of Arts, curated by Laurence Madeline, independent curator and formerly chief curator of Fine Arts at the Musée d’art et d’histoire in Geneva, and curated locally by Angelica Daneo, curator of painting and sculpture at the DAM.
There will be time at the beginning of the event to mingle and enjoy complimentary Odell beer, with other selections available at the cash-only bar. Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP. We look forward to seeing you!
