Eva Gonzales & Manet @ National Gallery

21 October 2022 - 15 January 2023

‘Discover Manet and Eva Gonzalès’ is the first in a series of exhibitions that look at a single painting from fresh and unexpected perspectives.

Eva Gonzales (1847–1883), the daughter of a prominent writer, entered Manet’s studio in 1869, at the age of 22. This exhibition is a chance to find out more about her; her relationship with Manet, a figurehead for the Impressionist generation, her own work, and what her experience as a woman artist in 19th-century Paris might have been. The exhibition also sets the portrait of Eva Gonzalès in a broader context by including self portraits made by women from the 18th to early 20th centuries, comparing and contrasting them with portraits painted of them by their male fellow artists and teachers. These include paintings by Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (1755–1842), Angelica Kauffmann (1741–1807), Berthe Morisot (1841–1895), Alfred Stevens (1823–1906), and Laura Knight (1877–1970), among others.
