From the brilliant international careers of Angelica Kauffmann and Elisabeth Vigée-Lebrun to the emergence of Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt as major Impressionists, women artists in the 19th century contributed to the history of art despite exclusion from professional opportunities reserved for men.  In addition to offering a survey of distinguished artists active between the late 18th century and the dawn of modernism, this lecture sets forth the distinctive accomplishments of gifted women in literature, in theater, and in patronage of the arts. 

Jonathan Ribner, associate professor; director of Graduate Admissions, Department of History of Art and Architecture, Boston University
