'Spinsters' and Influencers | Women Collectors of Impressionism (online)
Tue 6 Sep 2022
12:45 - 1:30pm
To meet demand we are also offering an online live stream of the event. Space is very limited, please do not come to the event without a pre-booked ticket.
Frances Fowle discusses the pioneering role played by women collectors in the early reception of Impressionism, from Bertha Palmer in Chicago to the Davies sisters in Wales and the Scottish yachtswoman Elizabeth Workman. The talk will take into consideration the role of women as agents, tastemakers and patrons, as well as the way in which their role has often been overshadowed by that of their husbands or male advisers.
