The Wallace Collection, London – Join us for an evening of music, illuminating the work of women artists and composers, active during the late eighteenth and nineteenth century, who have not had the attention that they deserve. Each artist has their individual story and developed ways of making their voice heard amidst social and political prejudices.
Featuring the work of Louise Farrenc, Marie Grandval and Pauline Viardot, the concert will be performed in our atmospheric Great Gallery with Diana Ambache (piano) Joy Hawley (cello) Anthony Robb (flute) Jeremy Polmear (oboe) and David Juritz (violin).
The evening will begin with a talk by Director, Christoph Vogtherr and Curator, Laura Langelüddecke, who will introduce the work of Louise Elisabeth Vigée le Brun, Constance Mayer, Rosa Bonheur and Marie-Anne Fragonard. There will also be an opportunity to explore their paintings in the galleries and a wine reception.
Editor’s Note: This is our second recent item that features the works of Louise Elisabeth Vigée le Brun
