With a Brush in Their Hand: Women Impressionists: Caroline Bacon

"Step aside Monet, Degas, Renoir, and Pissarro; this day will focus on the women Berthe Morisot, Mary Cassatt, Eva Gonzalès, and Marie Bracquemond who exhibited during the 1870s in Paris and yet were overlooked in the succeeding decades. Each faced challenges and prejudice but all made significant contributions to the Impressionist movement."
