From Revolution to the Belle Epoque: Stories of 19th century Women of Paris

  • Osher Lifelong Learning Institute Aquinas College (map)

Charlotte Corday, Marie Bashkirtseff, Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Sophie Blanchard, Jane Avril, Loïe Fuller, Juliette Recamier, Berthe Morisot are just a few of the fascinating women you’ll meet in this 2-hour class. French, Russian, American, so many incredible women brought their talents to Paris and helped define the history and culture of France. Many were superstars of their time but are too often forgotten today.

AFGR member Steve Soper will introduce you to women whose work transcends time, whose spirit lives on in paintings, in literature, in the very culture of European and Western Civilization.

April 12, 9:30-11:30am, Browne Center, Aquinas College.
