Women of the Impressionist Movement
"Impressionism is female." We understand this maxim when considering Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Eva Gonzales, and Marie Bracquemond, four outstanding female artists who developed distinct Impressionist subjects and styles. The four knew one another, were present in the contemporary art circles of Paris, and, above all, shared a common fate: they were talented women in a world ruled by men. This documentary by Rudij Bergmann, an expert on impressionism, tells the story of the four women and their works, setting them against the backdrop of aesthetic, historic, and social considerations that shaped their lives and work.
