Overview

The word “Parisienne” refers to women who live in the alluring city of Paris. These include refined hostesses who oversaw salons, women who sported novel hairstyles and trendy attire, models who served as artists’ muses, and painters and actresses whose flourishing talent allowed them to make their own way. The myriad lifestyles of these women were reflections of the age.

This exhibition focuses on the women who embodied French culture from the 18th to the 20th century in some 120 works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston. In addition to extravagant dresses hand-colored prints that depict the and fashions of the period, viewers can look forward to Renoir’s woman in exotic costume, Manet’s portrait of a dignified singer on a street corner, and work by Mary Cassatt, an American artist who made a name for herself in Paris. Please enjoy this diverse range of works related to Parisiennes.
