In 1765, for the first time, the Nouvelles de la République des Lettres et des Arts, in the Revue du Salon de la correspondance pour les sciences et les arts, published a section entitled “women painters”.
This catalogue brings together works and documents that make it possible to understand how – i.e. under what conditions and according to what strategies – painters, because they are women, have had to learn the trade, enter the art scene, build their careers and forge their public figure.
