The "Pioneers" exhibition: being a woman artist in the Paris of the Roaring Twenties

  • The "Pioneers" exhibition highlights the primordial role of women in the development of the great artistic movements of modernity, after the First World War
  • It traces the paths of 45 women artists precursors in several artistic fields
  • These pioneers, such as Tamara de Lempicka, Sonia Delaunay, Suzanne Valadon, Marie Laurencin or Chana Orloff ... were born at the end of the nineteenth or early twentieth century, and they access around the 20s, the great schools of art until then reserved for men
  • Many of them stay in Paris, and will participate in the cultural effervescence of the Roaring Twenties
  • The 1920s were a period of cultural ferment and effervescence, from which the termRoaring Twenties. The period will be synonymous with celebrations, exuberance and strong economic growth.
  • These "pioneers", sultry, emancipated and provocative women will finally be recognized as artists
  • Like men, they will own a studio, a gallery or a publishing house, direct workshops in art schools, represent naked bodies, whether male or female
  • They are the first to have the possibility to dress as they like, to live their sexuality whatever it is, to choose their spouse or not to marry...
  • These "pioneers" have influenced entire generations of artists and continue to do so today
  • If possible, we recommend a family visit to the exhibition with guides specialized in young people. These visits are always a great success. 2 dates are scheduled: April 30 and June 19 at 10:30 am. Reserve quickly !
