Women Gallerists in Post-War Paris @ Hanina Fine Arts

22 July 2020 - 26 September 2020

This exhibition celebrates the remarkable influence of women gallerists in post-war Paris. At a time when it was still confoundingly hard for women artists to get established, in 1951 one in three galleries in Paris were actually run by women. Often referred to as the “Papesses de l’art abstrait”, loosely translated into “high priestesses of abstract art”, but they proved fundamental in the development of post-war art.

At the time they were considered as subordinate to the male-dominated realm of art business so this is a fitting celebration of the achievements of the most significant Parisian women art dealers who championed new painting styles by women.
