Through painting, sculpture, photography, film, textiles, and literary works, this exhibit highlights the primordial role of women in the development of the great modern movements. These “femmes nouvelles” are the first to gain recognition as artists, to have a studio, a gallery or a literary editor, and to become teachers of art. They dressed as they wished and lived their sexuality as they chose. The interdisciplinary nature of their creative works influenced many during their time and continues have an influence today. The Museum’s brief description of the historical context of “les Années Folles,”https://museeduluxembourg.fr/fr/actualite/le-paris-des-annees-folles provides a succinct background both for the show and for our spring series of events.
