Featuring 77 paintings, prints, and sculpture from 1750 to 1850—a tumultuous revolutionary era—Royalists to Romantics celebrates these rare works, many of which have never been seen outside of France. The political upheavals of the French Revolution and the following decades brought a new set of challenges for women artists. Royalists to Romantics explores the complex ways that women negotiated their cultural positions and marketed their reputations in France’s shifting social, political and artistic environment. The exhibition includes work by 35 artists, including Antoine Cecile Haudebourt-Lescot, Adélaïde Labille-Guillard, and Élisabeth Louise Vigée-Lebrun.
"I looked at the new brochures for the Deanwood and Civil Rights Heritage Trails. I am always astonished and amazed at the work you do and the quality of it. Beautiful."
