Art Sunday #94: Marie Bracquemond – Under the Lamp


Marie Bracquemond (December 1, 1840 – January 17, 1916) was a French Impressionist artist, who was described retrospectively by Henri Focillon in 1928 as one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism alongside Berthe Morisot and Mary Cassatt.  Her frequent omission from books on women artists is sometimes attributed to the efforts of her husband, Félix Bracquemond. Félix respected his wife’s talents as an artist but disagreed fervently with her adaptation of Impressionist techniques, in particular her use of color.

      1. I’m very carful with the cleaning cloths being used. They are susceptible to spontaneous combustion. So I store them outside and that does cut down on the odour.
