      Graphic Women
    • Sunday, February 18, 2018
    • Focused on the efflorescence of professional women artists in Philadelphia that occurred in the decades between 1880 and the early 20th century, this intimate exhibition features the work of Violet Oakley, her teacher Cecilia Beaux, and their contemporaries Mary Cassatt, Susan MacDowell Eakins, Mary Nimmo Moran, Alice Barber Stephens, and Lilian Westcott Hale among many others. The exhibit includes over 30 delicate charcoals, etchings, pastels, pen-and-ink illustrations, and watercolors, which due to their ephemeral nature are not often shown PAFA's galleries. "Graphic Women" is presented in conjunction with A Grand Vision: Violet Oakley and the American Renaissance, a large-scale exhibition of the work of Violet Oakley, at the Woodmere Art Museum, on view September 30, 2017 through January 21, 2018.
