    Marie Petiet, Louise Abbema, Eva Gonzalès, Mary Cassatt, Berthe Morisot Behind this question emerge others who question the past as much as the present: why are there not more women artists? Is there a typically feminine art? Are there any similarities in the works of women artists that should be emphasized? What strategies have those who, despite the difficulties, wished to practice and make their art known? What did the critics think of these women painters or sculptors? What vision did male artists have for them? Speaker: Marie-Laure Ruiz-Maugis, art historian In the second half of the 19th century, institutional artistic careers remained closed to women. The School of Fine Arts was forbidden to them until 1897, official orders were rare and denigration common. Having no access to history painting or the nude, women artists are confined to genres considered secondary: portrait, landscape, still life. But thanks to the appearance of Impressionism, it is precisely in these genres that women will shine brilliantly, such as Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot. The latter is the admiration of Manet who painted it, of Degas and Monet. In the provinces, far from the hustle and bustle of Paris, women paint more modestly but with great sincerity, like Marie Petiet.
