Women at Work: A Closer Look at Women’s Labor and the Barbizon Landscape

Friday, June 16, 2023, 5:30 PM
All gallery talks and tours are free with museum admission; no tickets or reservations necessary.

Join Jennifer Tonkovich, Eugene and Clare Thaw Curator, Drawings and Prints as she explores the sympathetic portrayals of rural women at work produced by artists and photographers working in and around the village of Barbizon. What do these depictions tell us about women’s experience and their association with the rural environment? The discussion concludes with a close look at the experimental watercolors of George Sand (the pen name of writer Amantine Dupin) and how her playful creations relate to the landscape tradition. 

Held in conjunction with the exhibition Into the Woods: French Drawings and Photographs from the Karen B. Cohen Gift
