Throughout time, women have been involved with art making in a variety of ways as artists, patrons, and collectors. In spite of the integral roles they have played, many women artists have not been included in the traditional narrative of art history, facing challenges due to gender biases and also difficulties in finding training and venues to exhibit and sell their work as a means to gain recognition.  In the beginning of the twentieth century, things began to change for female artists with social shifts towards equal rights encouraging them to address issues of identity in our own time.  Using the Met's collection, this guided tour will trace the evolution of female painters since the time of the Renaissance, exploring a number of women artists on view in the Met's European Paintings Galleries, the Nineteenth Century Wing and the Modern and Contemporary Galleries.  Images discussed will range from the Baroque period and the work of Artemisia Gentileschi and the painters of the ancien regime such as Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun and Adélaïde Labille-Guiard, to those of the female Impressionists Mary Cassatt and Berthe Morisot, and American women of the twentieth and twenty-first centuries including Georgia O'Keeffe and Susan Rothenberg.

Celebrated as one of America's preeminent landscape painters, Thomas Cole (1801–1848) was born in northern England at the start of the industrial revolution, immigrated to the United States in his youth, and traveled extensively throughout England and Italy as a young artist. He returned to America to create some of his most ambitious works and inspire a new generation of American painters. This exhibition will examine for the first time the artist's career in relation to his European roots and travels, establishing Cole as a major figure in 19th-century landscape art within a global context. Thomas Cole's Journey marks the 200th anniversary of Cole's first Atlantic crossing, when he emigrated from England to the United States in 1818, and examines in-depth Cole's return journey to England in 1829–31 and his travels in Italy in 1831–32, revealing the development of his artistic processes. Seminal works created by the artist in the years immediately after his return to New York, between 1832 and 1837—notably The Oxbow and The Course of Empire—are presented as a culminating creative response to his complex experiences of British art and society and of Italian history and landscape. In addition, Cole's abiding passion for the American wilderness resulted in his fervent visual warning in these paintings to his fellow American citizens of the harsh ecological cost of unchecked development of the land. This exhibition brings to prominence the dialogue between American and European artists in the mid-19th century by hanging Cole's work in direct juxtaposition with works he studied on his formative journey, including paintings by J. M. W. Turner and John Constable, among others. It concludes with an examination of Cole's extraordinary legacy in the work of the next generation of American landscape painters whom he personally mentored, notably Asher B. Durand and Frederic E. Church.
