The French art historian, Henri Focillon, called Marie Bracquemond one of “les trois grandes dames” of Impressionism. If her name isn’t as familiar as the two others, Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot, it’s likely due to, er... a lack of support from her husband. Turns out, Felix Bracquemond, fellow artist and printmaker, notoriously opposed his wife’s adoption of Impressionist techniques. Three Women with Parasols is an example. Featured on the banner used by the Denver Art Museum to promote the exhibition, Her Paris, Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism, Three Women with Parasols was painted in 1880 and Bracquemond gave up painting 10 years later.
