After Ernest Meissonier. I start a new series of 10 images, in no real order this time. it is a question of drawing up each time a portrait of a woman, strong enough to affirm her identity in a world dominated by patriarchy. These women of different eras, origins, and different ages continue to fight for their visibility, despite prejudice. My list is not exhaustive, there is so much to say; likewise, the dominant male gaze remains on the lookout under the presence, in each image, of an invisible man, who retains a share of power. Finally, each painting chosen places this fight for better visibility for women in a history of art largely shaped by men. Thank you for the view and your comments.

The Ernest Meissonier painting is of a young man writing. It seems our foreground woman is also an author using modern tools. She is casually dressed while the invisible man looking on is more formally attired with a tie, white shirt and pressed pants. Is he perhaps too concerned with formal appearances to appreciate her spontaneous art? Thanks for sharing, I have been greatly enjoying this series as I am getting caught up with viewing it!

the young woman is indeed a young author, whose appearance leaves nothing to distinguish her talent (which in any case will not be seen on the screen). By contrast, the man's outfit functions as an argument of authority (like a professor coming to correct her faults). Once again, it's the ironic discrepancy of the patriarchal vision of female creation.
