    Behind this question are emerging others that question the past as much as the present: why aren't there more women artists? Is there a typically feminine art? Do the works of women artists have similarities that should be highlighted? What strategies have put in place those who, despite the difficulties, wanted to exercise and make their art known? What did the critics think of these women painters or sculptors? What vision did male artists have of them? Speaker: Marie-Laure Ruiz-Maugis, art historian If the road is difficult for women painters, it is even more so for women sculptors whose art requires physical strength that is denied to "sex weak ". In the 19th century, the case of Camille Claudel, even if it is not unique, remains exceptional (and still does not escape the influence of Rodin). Things changed in the 20th century with Germaine Richier, who defied academic rules by inventing shredded and hybrid beings, between man and animal, Niki de Saint Phalle and her Nanas or Louise Bourgeois and her giant spiders. Today, Cécile Raynal, through works of great strength and a striking presence, perpetuates the dialogue begun centuries ago with mythology, storytelling, the psyche and memory.
