We all know the names of many of the artists of the impressionist era, but almost no one can identify the young women who were immortalized in their work. They were the dance hall girls, shop girls, bar girls, prostitutes, and country girls who came to Paris looking for an exciting life during La Belle Epoque. For a few francs they could be coaxed to sitting as the subject for artists whose style was repudiated by the critics and whose work would likely “never amount to anything.”
So join us on October 12th as we look at priceless works of impressionist style art and the “bad girls” whose identities are largely unknown and who now live forever on the walls of every major museum in the world.
