Summary
"Overcoming All Obstacles: The Women of the Academie Julian is the first book to examine late nineteenth-century Paris's most famous training ground for the leading women artists of the period. The Academie Julian was founded in Paris in 1868, initially to prepare students for entry to the Ecole des Beaux-Arts, the nineteenth century's preeminent art school. Because women could not study at the Ecole des Beaux-Arts until 1897, Julian itself became an international equivalent for many of the late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century's most important women artists." "Not only does Overcoming All Obstacles introduce the reader to many works by women artists - both famous and lesser known - but the essays offer a cultural and historical context in which to appreciate their art."--BOOK JACKET
