Related to The Fralin Musem of Art, Emilie Charmy exhibition through February 2 - The Tactics of Women's Art
by Anne Higonnet, Professor of Art History, Barnard College and Columbia University
What tactics did Émilie Charmy use to enter the art world on feminine terms? What historical precedents could she have tapped into? And what lessons for the teaching or exhibition of a global and multi-media art can we learn from Charmy’s case?

Anne Higonnet is a professor of art history at Barnard College and Columbia University. She received her BA from Harvard and her PhD from Yale. She currently teaches courses on Collecting, Impressionism, and the Introduction to the History of Art. Her many awards include fellowships and grants from the Guggenheim, Mellon, and Howard Foundations, as well as from the Getty Research Center and Social Science Research Council. The author of five books and dozens of articles on 18th, 19th, and 20th century art, she is currently preparing an exhibition on the forgotten work of Anna Hyatt Huntington, one of early 20th century New York’s City’s most successful sculptors. In the spring of 2014 she will give a series of lectures at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on detective research stories about some of the museum’s best-beloved treasures.
