Pursuits in Impressionist paintings included visiting the theatre, the park, and the café as well as using the omnibus. These were activities in which women’s behaviour was circumscribed by rules of respectability. Women artists were not permitted to work from the life model, nor to move around the city as freely as male counterparts. Yet some of the most innovative paintings during this period were produced by women. This course will explore women both as subjects and makers and will include an exploration of the works of Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot and Cecilia Beaux as well as by Renoir, Degas and Toulouse-Lautrec.
