The visual arts revolution that was Impressionism is, too often, only understood only through the lens of the leading male practitioners – Monet, Renoir and Degas. How did the women Impressionists contribute to this novel style and how did their work differ from their male contemporaries? This program explores the paintings of Marie Bracquemond, Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt and others and considers the unique challenges they faced as women artists in a male-dominated profession.
