Marking the 150th anniversary of the first Impressionist exhibition, held in Paris in 1874, Women Impressionists showcases the works of four important artists. Berthe Morisot (1841-1895), Eva Gonzalès (1849-1883), Marie Bracquemond (1860-1914) and Mary Cassatt (1844-1926) played vital roles in one of the most revolutionary movements in Western art. The exhibition explores how each artist navigated complex personal and professional networks to create and exhibit her art, and is the first exhibition to bring these four important artists together in Ireland.

Highlights include: The Artist's Daughter, Julie, with her Nanny, c. 1884, by Berthe Morisot; Le Goûter, c.1880 by Marie Bracquemond; Susan Comforting the Baby, c.1881, by Mary Cassatt; and Eva Gonzalès’ Enfant de troupe, 1870.

Women Impressionists features works from the collections of the National Gallery of Ireland and Ordrupgaard, Denmark, as well as from public and private collections in Europe and the United States.

This exhibition is organised by Ordrupgaard in collaboration with the National Gallery of Ireland.

The Gallery would like to thank the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sport and Media for their ongoing support. 

Curators: Janet McLean (Curator of Modern Art, National Gallery of Ireland) and Dorthe Vangsgaard Nielsen (Senior Curator, Ordrupgaard).
