Lecture Series finishes this Friday with a lecture from Dr.Mary Healy
Dept of Art History, UCC, 'Visualising the 'Orient': a French Woman Orientalist in North Africa, 1893-1909'.
Until recently only one female artist was recognised in the canon of French Orientalist art. Through empirical research Dr. Mary Healy has recorded eighty six, largely ignored French female artists whose works—for a period of their practices—show influence of Orientalist subject matter.
This lecture will focus on the artist Marie Lucas-Robiquet and a selection of her Orientalist paintings, which she created in North Africa between 1893 and 1909. Dr. Healy will position Lucas-Robiquet in French Orientalist scholarship by questioning what role her paintings played in France’s aspiration to visualise the 'Orient'.
The Lecture begins at 1pm, admission is €5, All Welcome!
