Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art presents Creatures of the Night: Women in Paris from 1850-1900

March 28, 2019 - March 22, 2020

Women in Paris gained more rights in Paris toward the end of the 1800s, and nightfall offered the perfect cover for a variety of their activities from the innocent to illicit. The public feared women’s shifting role from motherhood to independent woman. These feelings played out in popular media and fine art, with artists using their work to express individual and national anxieties. The works featured in this gallery by artists such as Edouard Manet, Eugène Grasset, and Odilon Redon reflect those fears through the character of the femme fatale, or “fatal women.”
