The male side of the Impressionists’ history is pretty well-known. But like many moments in history, the views and works of women from that time have been ignored, relegated to footnotes or treated as strange outliers.
The exhibit, made up of 80 paintings currently hanging in the Speed’s special exhibition gallery, seeks to change that. Each canvas was painted by women during the late 19th century. It’s a show that seeks, like the #MeToo movement, to lift up the unheard voices of women.
