Label for "Parisian Ecologies: The City Transformed in Nineteenth-Century Prints and Drawings" March 24 - June 25, 2022

This colored lithograph and woodcut display multiple ways in which art pictured the decline of nature and revealed relationships among ecology, class, and gender. In Luce’s lithograph, a woman of the leisure class sits in the grass, appearing almost fused with the tree’s shadow and giving the impression of being “one” with nature. The surrounding houses, however, reveal that this is no natural landscape but a suburban garden; in fact, it is the garden of artist Camille Pissarro. In Au Travail, a woman, in darkness, embroiders an image of a tree. She is separated from nature, reflecting the constricted conditions of working women at the time.
