Out of stock


In a first, the Museum and three sister committees joined together to present a conversation between Paris Spies-Gans and Martina Droth to discuss Spies-Gans’ important first book, A Revolution on Canvas: The Rise of Women Artists in Britain and France, 1760-1830.

Tracing the activity of more than 1,300 women who exhibited more than 7,000 works of art across genres in London’s and Paris’s premier exhibition venues throughout the Revolutionary Era, the book demonstrates that women artists professionalized in significant numbers a century earlier than scholars have previously thought.
