DESCRIPTION

More than 80 works from the MFA’s permanent collection explore the role of women in art. These paintings by and about women include works by Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keeffe, Lilla Cabot Perry, Helen Torr, Edgar Degas, Gretchen Woodman Rogers and many others. There have always been great women artists. And beginning in the 19th century, no longer simply the subjects for a male artist’s gaze, women took brush and paint into their own hands, using them to depict a broad range of subjects and creating accomplished works in a variety of styles.
