Led by Tan Bo, Senior Vice President & International Director, Impressionist & Modern Department at Christie’s, this lecture will cover women artists and collectors from the Impressionist period. Covering artists such as Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt and Eva Gonzales, and collectors Louisine E. Havemeyer, Potter Palmer, and the Davies sisters of Wales, Tan Bo will discuss their place in an art scene dominated by men, together with their unique contribution to the creation of the canon for Impressionism.
