Celebrate women with the cycle of conferences: "Creating in the Feminine"

The years 1780-1852: the beginnings of artistic independence


WOMEN'S ART: With CultureSecrets, discover the series of online courses: "Women's Art" by Histoires d'Art in partnership with the RMN - Grand Palais.

If you love art and want to discover the place of women in this great History, attend this course on the stand and the will of independence of women artists in the years 1780 - 1852.

To know

Led by Sonia Brunel, lecturer at the Réunion des musées nationaux - Grand Palais and a passionate and experienced art historian, you will approach art in a new way through a female prism.

Women have been the great forgotten of artistic creation. However, they have been more numerous than we think to want to impose themselves alongside their male colleagues. They invested little by little various artistic practices to which they brought all their creativity. But not without difficulties! Famous, forgotten or unknown, let's discover these remarkable women!

And you will see in this course that the years 1780-1852 were very difficult for them. Indeed, the Revolution in 1789, which brought the hope of artistic equality, was only a decoy for women. However, they were able to make their way towards artistic independence and the 19th century was decisive for them.
