March 4, 2016 Free Lecture — Starting at 7pm
Shenandoah University, Henkel Hall, Hester Auditorium
“Berthe Morisot and the Impressionist Image of Women”
The Center for Lifelong Learning presents Mr. Jeffrey Allison of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts who will present this free lecture. This special event is provided through the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts Statewide Partner program. Berthe Morisot was a woman of extraordinary talents who carved a career for herself out of the male-dominated art world of 19th century Paris. She was one of only a few women who exhibited with both the Paris Salon and the highly influential and innovative impressionists. Morisot’s art depicts the world of the bourgeoisie: their clothes, their lifestyle, their surroundings, and their relationships. Through her unusual talent, the modern viewer can see the essence of quotidian life for the rising middle class of 19th century Paris. For more information call 540-665-4696 | 540-665-5442.
