    • December 1988: Nineteenth-Century French Drawings and Watercolors at The Brooklyn Museum, an exhibition of 80 works ranging in date from 1778 to 1911 and drawn from the Museum’s own holdings, will be on view in the Prints and Drawings galleries, located on the second floor, from December 2, 1988, through February 20, 1989. The exhibition comprises examples by nearly 50 artists including Barye, Cézanne, Puvis de Chavannes, Daumier, Manet, Millet, Picasso, Pissarro, Redon and Rodin. Noteworthy works on view include such masterpieces as Chassériau’s Portrait of Madame Monnerot (1839), Degas’ Woman Drying Her Hair after the Bath (c. 1889) and Toulouse-Lautrec’s Madame la Comtesse Adéle de Toulouse-Lautrec (1882), a portrait of the artist’s mother.

      The presentation complements the Museum’s major international loan exhibition Courbet Reconsidered (Nov. 4-Jan. 16) and its concurrent Curator’s Choice exhibition of 19th-century French painting, A Century of French Painting (Oct. 19-Mar. 6).

      The exhibition was organized under the supervision of Sarah Faunce, Chairman of the Department of Painting and Sculpture, and Linda Konheim Kramer, Curator of Prints and Drawings, at The Brooklyn Museum. It was made possible, in part, by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency.

    "Hi, I am trying to find the name of the artist who took and is in the photograph that follows- http://www.brooklynmuseum.org/opencollection/exhibitions/664/Global_Feminisms_Remix/image/216/Global_Feminisms_Remix._%7C08032007_-_03032008%7C._Installation_view. I believe the artist takes pictures of herself dressed as a man but then exposes her femaleness, as in the photo of her dressed as an Ascetic Jew exposing her breast. Can you help me find her information? Thanks in advance- Aimee Record"
