~ Weekly series : women artists ~ . To end this weekly series, we can say that women were marginalised in the art world. It was not until the twentieth century, and even the second half of this century, that we see women dedicate themselves to painting by approaching all subjects without any scandal. Suzanne Valadon, Hermine David, Marie Laurencin, Maria Elena Vieira da Silva, Frida Kahlo, Tamara de Lempicka, and so on. Women painters, however, are still sometimes devalued. They are seen as the wife of, the mother of, the sister of, the mistress of, etc., before being considered as artists. Thus, Suzanne Valadon is first the mother of Utrillo; we are interested only in his works. Sonia Delaunay is first the wife of Robert Delaunay. In the same way we talk about the brothers Duchamp while forgetting their sister Suzanne who nevertheless influenced her husband Jean-Joseph Crotti. Women were admitted to the Ecole Nationale Superieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris only in 1897, and with many restrictions: they were entitled only to clothed models. It was not until 1900 that the Beaux-Arts of Paris accepted female pupils without restrictions. The first women winners of the Prix de Rome of painting were Odette Pauvert in 1925, Jeanne Leroux in 1927, Irène Kalebdjian in 1930, and Alice Richter, who won two awards in Rome in 1933 and 1939.

~ Weekly series : women artists • Berthe Morisot • ~ . Berthe Morisot was born in 1841 and was a French painter and printmaker who exhibited regularly with the Impressionists and, despite the protests of friends and family, continued to participate in their struggle for recognition. The daughter of a high government official (and a granddaughter of the important Rococo painter Jean-Honoré Fragonard), Morisot decided early to be an artist and pursued her goal with seriousness and dedication. From 1862 to 1868 she worked under the guidance of Camille Corot. She first exhibited paintings at the Salon in 1864. Her work was exhibited there regularly through 1874, when she vowed never to show her paintings in the officially sanctioned forum again. In 1868 she met Édouard Manet, who was to exert a tremendous influence over her work. He did several portraits of her. Manet had a liberating effect on her work, and she in turn aroused his interest in outdoor painting. In 1874 she married Manet’s younger brother, Eugène, also a painter. Morisot’s work never lost its Manet-like quality, an insistence on design, nor did she become as involved in colour-optical experimentation as her fellow Impressionists. Her paintings frequently included members of her family, particularly her sister, Edma. Delicate and subtle, exquisite in colour, often with a subdued emerald glow, they won her the admiration of her Impressionist colleagues. Like that of the other Impressionists, her work was ridiculed by many critics. Never commercially successful during her lifetime, she nevertheless outsold Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, and Alfred Sisley. She was a woman of great culture and charm and counted among her close friends Stéphane Mallarmé, Edgar Degas, Charles Baudelaire, Émile Zola, Emmanuel Chabrier, Renoir, and Monet. #berthemorisot #morisot #painter #painting #portrait #impressionist #impressionism #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Rosa Bonheur • ~ . Rosa Bonheur was born in 1822 in Bordeaux. She was a French painter and sculptor famed for the remarkable accuracy and detail of her pictures featuring animals. Toward the end of her career those qualities were accentuated by a lighter palette and the use of a highly polished surface finish. She was trained by her father, Raymond Bonheur, an art teacher and a follower of the social theorist Henri de Saint-Simon. In 1836, she met Nathalie Micas, who became a lifelong companion. By the time Bonheur was in her teens, her talent for sketching live animals had manifested itself, and—rejecting training as a seamstress—she began studying animal motion and forms on farms, in stockyards, and at animal markets, horse fairs, and slaughterhouses, observing and sketching them and gaining an intimate knowledge of animal anatomy. At the Salon of 1841 she exhibited two paintings, Goats and Sheep and Rabbits Nibbling Carrots (1840). . Her sketching visits to those public places were largely the domain of men, as well as her work in the studio, prompted her by at least the early 1850s to eschew traditional female clothing for the trousers and loose blouse of a male peasant. She continued to dress in masculine attire for the rest of her life, though she came to be mocked and disparaged for her garb. Like novelist George Sand, whom Bonheur admired, she obtained police authorization to dress as she did (1852).Bonheur also made a number of sketching trips to such regions as Auvergne and the Pyrenees, as well as to London, Birmingham, and Scotland. She exhibited regularly at the Salon from 1841 to 1855, winning exemption from jury approval in 1853. Her work rapidly gained popularity in the United States and Britain. The Horse Fair (1853), considered to be her masterpiece, was acquired in 1887 by Cornelius Vanderbiltfor a record sum and became one of her most widely reproduced works. #rosabonheur #painter #painting #portrait #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #intelligent #powerfull #ruler #noble

~ Weekly series : women artists • Madame Cavé • ~ . Madame Cavé was born in 1806 in Paris. She was a French painter and drawing professor. Born Marie-Élisabeth Blavot and also known as Marie Monchablon in her youth (from her mother's name), she married the painter Clément Boulanger and then, after Boulanger's death, Edmond Cavé, whom she also outlived. Known as Madame Cavé during the July Monarchy due to her husband's official duties, she was equally friendly with Neoclassicistadmirers of Ingres and with Romantic painters such as Delacroix, with whom she was friends. After she was widowed, she taught drawing to young women and published two teaching pamphlets on drawing and colour during the Second French Empire. She later also published reflections on women's conduct and place in society. She exhibited at the Paris Salon several times and gained quite a favourable critical reputation, though critics praised her for not stepping beyond her rôle and talent as a woman. She herself wrote in 1850 "for too often ideas of great painting, of history painting, as it's called in our own times, comes to trouble [the spirits of young girls]. Ambition to equal men, to rival them, loses them." She initially wrote a work on artistic training, Le dessin sans maître (1850), which explained the Cavé Method, which she said she had used since 1847. It aimed to exercise visual memory, a basic aptitude necessary for drawing. Delacroix wrote a favourable review in the Revue des deux Mondes of September 1850. Madame Cavé then wrote L'aquarelle sans maître (Watercolour without a master), in which she discussed colour. These two small books combined a learning method, practical advice, reflections on the theoretical order of arts and crafts and moral treatments of women's place in society. #madamecave #cavé #marieelisabethboulanger #painted #painting #portrait #romanticism #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent #neoclassicism

~ Weekly series : women artists • Elisabeth-Sophie Chéron • ~ . Born in Paris in 1648, Élisabeth Sophie Chéron was the daughter of Henri Chéron, a French miniature painter, enameller, and engraver. She was trained in the art of painting in enamel by her father and proved a very successful pupil by the age of fourteen, she had already "acquired a name." She had also experienced conflict in her family : her Huguenot father was a strict Calvinist, and she had been raised in the reformed faith, but her mother, Marie Lefebvre, was Catholic. Despite her father's preferred religion, the young Élisabeth Sophie spent at least a year in the Benedictine convent of the Abbey of Notre-Dame de Jouarre. It was in the convent that she began her work, painting portraits of some of her aristocratic classmates and of the abbess, Henriette Lourraine. In 1672, she was admitted to the Académie Royale de Peinture et de Sculpture, sponsored by the French painter Charles Le Brun. Between 1673 and 1690 she exhibited her work frequently. In 1700, she was provided with an annual pension of 400 livres by the French king, Louis XIV. Although known for her portraits, particularly those produced with royal patronage, Chéron also produced paintings with classical themes, religious subjects, and landscapes. #elisabethsophiecheron #cheron #chéron #painter #painting #portrait #louisxiv #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent #engraving #woodcut #classicism #baroque

~ Weekly series : women artists • Marie-Guillemine Benoist • ~ Marie-Guillemine Benoist was a French woman painter. She first studied with Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun in 1781 and in 1786 worked in the studio of Jacques-Louis David. In 1784 she met the poet Charles-Albert Demoustier (1760-1801), and the figure of Emilie in his Lettres de la mythologie represents her. She exhibited at the Salon in 1791 (Psyche Taking Leave of her Family) and obtained a gold medal there in 1804. Her reputation as a portrait painter brought her commissions from Napoleon and his family: in 1803 she painted the portrait of the emperor Napoleon and in 1807 of Pauline Bonaparte. She also executed the portraits of Marie-Elise, Grand Duchess of Tuscany and the empress Marie-Louise. She made her name with the semi-nude Portrait of a Negress (exhibited on the Salon 1800; Paris, Louvre), in which she broke with the graceful style of her early works. Benoist also attempted genre scenes, for example The Fortune-teller (1812) and the Bible Reading (1810), an intimate scene close to those of Martin Drolling, although with less emphasis on detail. On the restoration of the Monarchy in 1815, her husband, the advocate Pierre-Vincent Benoist, whom she had married in 1793, was made a member of the Council of State and, although at the summit of her career, she was obliged to abandon painting. #marieguilleminebenoist #benoist #vigeelebrun #painter #painting #portrait #neoclassical #neoclassicism #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun • ~ . Élisabeth Vigée-Lebrun was born in 1755 in Paris. She was a French painter, one of the most successful women artists (unusually so for her time), particularly noted for her portraits of women. Her father and first teacher, Louis Vigée, was a noted portraitist who worked chiefly in pastels. In 1776 she married an art dealer, J.-B.-P. Lebrun. Her great opportunity came in 1779 when she was summoned to Versailles to paint a portrait of Queen Marie-Antoinette. The two women became friends, and in subsequent years Vigée-Lebrun painted more than 20 portraits of Marie-Antoinette in a great variety of poses and costumes. She also painted a great number of self-portraits, in the style of various artists whose work she admired. In 1783, because of her friendship with the queen, Vigée-Lebrun was grudgingly accepted into the Royal Academy. On the outbreak of the Revolution in 1789, she left France and for 12 years lived abroad, traveling to Rome, Naples, Vienna, Berlin, St. Petersburg, and Moscow, painting portraits and playing a leading role in society. In 1801 she returned to Paris but, disliking Parisian social life under Napoleon, she soon left for London, where she painted portraits of the court, of Lord Byron, and painted a portrait of Mme de Staël. She returned to Paris (1810), where she continued to paint until her death. Vigée-Lebrun was a woman of much wit and charm, and her memoirs, Souvenirs de ma vie (1835 “Reminiscences of My Life”), provide a lively account of her life and times. She was one of the most technically fluent portraitists of her era, and her pictures are notable for freshness, charm, and sensitivity of presentation. During her career, according to her own account, she painted 900 pictures, including some 600 portraits and about 200 landscapes. #elisabethvigeelebrun #vigeelebrun #versailles #marieantoinette #painter #painting #portrait #neoclassical #neoclassicism #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Artemisia Gentileschi • ~ . Artemisia was born in 1593 in Rome and was an Italian painter, daughter of Orazio Gentileschi, who was a major follower of the revolutionary Baroque painter Caravaggio. She was an important second-generation proponent of Caravaggio’s dramatic realism. A pupil of her father and of his friend the landscape painter Agostino Tassi, she painted at first in a style indistinguishable from her father’s somewhat lyrical interpretation of Caravaggio’s example. Her first known work is Susanna and the Elders (1610), an accomplished work long attributed to her father. She also painted two versions of a scene already essayed by Caravaggio (but never attempted by her father), Judith Beheading Holofernes (1620). She was raped by Tassi, and, when he did not fulfill his promise to marry her, Orazio Gentileschi in 1612 brought him to trial. During that event she herself was forced to give evidence under torture. In 1616 she joined Florence’s Academy of Design, she was the first woman to do so. She began to develop her own distinct stylen she specialized in history painting. In Florence she was associated with the Medici court and painted an Allegory of Inclination (1616). Her colours are more brilliant than her father’s, and she continued to employ the tenebrism. About 1630 she moved to Naples, and in 1638 she arrived in London, where she worked for King Charles I, with her father. They collaborates on the ceiling paintings of the Great Hall in the Queen’s House in Greenwich. After Orazio’s death in 1639, she stayed on in London for at least several more years. According to her biographer Baldinucci (who appended her life to that of her father), she painted many portraits and quickly surpassed her father’s fame. #artemisiagentileschi #gentileschi #caravaggio #painter #painting #portrait #tenebrism #baroque #historypainting #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Caterina van Hemessen ~ . In this first known Northern European self-portrait by a woman, Caterina Van Hemessen represented herself as a confident artist momentarily interrupting her work to look out at the viewer. Caterina van Hemessen was a highly successful painter. Queen Mary of Hungary is said to have been her biggest admirer. Van Hemessen married Christian de Morien in 1554, and then she ended her art career. Art historians say this is true because there is no evidence of any paintings by her after the date of her marriage. It was customary for women to give up painting after they were married. Caterina van Hemessen was born in 1527 in Antwerp, Belgium. Her father, Jan Sanders van Hemessen was a well known painter. Her father taught her to paint, she also helped him on many of his works. Van Hemessen painted portraits of the wealthy women and men of her era. Her works are usually small pictures of people against a bland dark background. Her self-portrait displays a very young, shy woman, that has a look of sadness upon her face. She holds a brush, pallet, and other painter's tools in her left hand, and is beginning to work on a picture, holding a fine brush carefully in her right hand. This may be the first image of an artist at work done as a self-portrait. There are ten signed and dated works by van Hemessen that are known to exist, they now reside in the National Gallery in London. Since she stopped painting in her twenties her work will most likely never reach its full artistic recognition. Her portraits are both charming, and have an appealing intimacy to them. Van Hemessen's work includes several religous paintings based on historical events, with large groups of figures, these works were not as successful as her portraits. . #caterinavanhemessen #hemessen #painter #painting #portrait #renaissance #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Sofonisba Anguissola ~ . Sofonisba was born in 1532, in Italy. She was a late Renaissance painter, best known for her portraiture. She was one of the first known female artists and one of the first women artists to establish an international reputation. Among other female painters, she was unusual in that her father was a nobleman rather than a painter. Like a true Rennaissance man, her father, Amilcare Anguissola, was guided by the words of Baldassare Castiglione in Il cortegiano (The Courtier), not least in his consideration regarding the proper education of a young woman. In 1546, Sofonisba was sent to board in the household of Campi, a local painter. Sofonisba continued her training with Bernardino Gatti. During this period of her life, through the influence of her father, she also received encouragement from Michelangelo, copying a drawing he sent her and sending it to him. While beginning to earn a living. About 30 of her paintings from this period, including many self-portraits and the well-known Lucia, Minerva, and Europa Anguissola Playing Chess (1555), survived into the 21st century. Anguissola’s reputation spread, and in 1559 she was invited to Madrid, to the court of Philip II, where in addition to painting portraits she was an attendant to the Infanta Isabella Clara Eugenia (later the archduchess of Austria) and a lady-in-waiting to Philip’s third wife, Elizabeth of Valois. Most of Anguissola’s paintings of this period are no longer extant, having burned in a fire during the 17th century. During this later period, she was influenced by the work of the Genoese painter Luca Cambiaso. Her work, like that of many early female painters, was often attributed to male painters of the period, in Anguissola’s case painters as various as Titian, Da Vinci, Moroni... Doubtless Anguissola was among the most accomplished painters of the late Renaissance. . #sofonisba #sofonisbaanguissola #painter #painting #portrait #renaissance #feminism #feminist #artist #weeklyseries #history #historylover #queen #woman #strong #art #arthistory #artlover #womenfromhistory #independent #princess #power #ruler #powerfull #noble #intelligent

~ Weekly series : women artists • Jeanne de Montbaston • ~ . Richard de Montbaston is a Parisian copyist of the late 14th century. Out of his workshop, we count the novel of the rose, illuminated by his wife, Jeanne. Having taken the oath of the booksellers in 1338, Richard de Montbaston was mentioned as a "bookseller" in the Colophon of the Life of the Saints. On the other hand, his wife, Jeanne, took the oath of the booksellers in 1353 as illuminatrix and libraria, which gave rise to speculation that if Richard had the title of copyist and was the owner of the workshop, it would be impossible to attribute to him the illuminations of his manuscripts and that they should be attributed to his wife, Jeanne, although her work is not documented in any surviving manuscript. Jeanne de Montbaston was a medieval Frenchwoman, an artist who worked on some of the bestselling books of her time. One of her illustrations has taken on a life of its own, appearing on twitter, facebook and buzzfeed with regularity. It belongs with the scandalous, rude and misogynistic poem, the Roman de la Rose or ‘Romance of the Rose,’ and it features a tiny nun picking penises from a tree laden with phallic fruit. it is one of my favourite examples of the ways in which medieval women made their own voices and views heard, even within the margins of texts written by men. #jeannedemontbaston #painting #painter #artist #feminist #feminism #independent #illumination #medievalart #engraving #woodcut #penistree #weeklyseries #history #historylover #art #arthistory #artlover #woman #strong #womenfromhistory #queen #middleages #medieval
