This segment is exactly what it sounds like--all the exhibitions I wish I could see.

This exhibition showcases the remarkable artistic production of women artists working in Paris during the latter half of the nineteenth century. Paris was the epicenter of the art world during this period, and while it was a cosmopolitan city, it remained strikingly conservative, particularly with respect to gender. Nevertheless, many women chose to work and study there. Women Artists in Paris reveals the breadth and strength of their achievements and features paintings created by women of varied nationalities and fame. These artists range from the well-known—Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, and Rosa Bonheur—to those less recognizable to US audiences, such as Kitty Kielland, Louise Breslau, and Anna Ancher.
