At the time Impressionism was born, female artists were starting to come to the forefront of the art world. Women Impressionists
breaks new ground by looking at the work and contributions of four
female Impressionists, shown together for the first time in the United
States. Many of the works deal with images of women—women at home,
women with family, and women at leisure—in addition to other themes
typical of Impressionism. June 21, 2008 — September 21, 2008.

Mary Cassatt, Young Lady in a Loge Gazing to the Right, 1880. Pastel and gouache. Ann and Gordon Getty.
