"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Académie Julian"
2000-01-18 until 2000-05-13
Dahesh Museum
New York, NY, USA United States of America

Marie Bashkirtseff (Maria Bashkirtseva) (Ukrainian, 1860 - 1884) In the Studio, 1881. Oil on canvas. Dnipropetrovsk State Art Museum, Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine. Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Académie Julian January 18 - May 13, 2000 The Académie Julian was the outstanding private art academy in late 19th-century France. It was also the only place where a woman could receive training comparable to that offered by the official Ecole des Beaux-Arts, which did not accept women until 1897. This first major museum exhibition to explore the Académie Julian concentrates on the women who traveled to Paris to study and then established themselves as working artists in their native countries, thereby creating a new class of female professionals.

The core of the exhibition includes works never before shown publicly from the collection of the successor school, the Académie Julian Del Debbio in Paris, as well as paintings from France, America, Sweden, Poland and Ukraine. The exhibition, organized by the Dahesh Museum, was seen at the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, Massachusetts, October 2, 1999 - January 2, 2000. After its showing at the Dahesh Museum, the exhibition will travel to the Dixon Gallery and Gardens, Memphis, Tennessee, July 9 - September 24, 2000.

Rutgers University Press and the Dahesh Museum are co-publishing the fully illustrated catalogue, edited by co-curators Professor Gabriel P. Weisberg and Dr. Jane R. Becker. For more information on obtaining a copy of the catalogue please visit the Dahesh Museum Gift Shop.

This exhibition is supported in part by grants from The Citibank Private Bank and the Florence Gould Foundation. The Consulate General of Ukraine, New York, provided assistance.
