Location: Room 33 on the first floor.

The artists of turn-of-the-century Paris witnessed the rapid transformation of women’s role in society and, headed by the Impressionists, became chroniclers of the incipient process of women’s emancipation. A new installation featuring nine works from the permanent collection by painters such as Degas, Picasso, Toulouse-Lautrec and Modigliani that illustrate the image of women in the Paris of 1900 will be on show in room 33 until 8 February. The artists depict them in streets, theatres, cafés and shops and cover the full social spectrum: from elegant ladies of the haute bourgeoisie to working-class women.
