Along with its famous fountains, the conservatory, high-end shopping, world-class restaurants and luxurious accommodations, the Bellagio is also home to the Gallery of Fine Art. Every year the gallery features a different exhibit, showcasing some of the most famous artists from around the world.
Feb. 14 through Oct. 23, 2014, the Gallery of Fine Art at the Bellagio presents "Painting Women: Works from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston" showcasing 34 paintings from 1860 – 1950. The exhibit will spotlight women’s artistic achievements as domestic independence and increased opportunities for artistic education resulted in a growth of female artists.
“‘Painting Women’ tells a powerful and emotional story detailing how women artists developed and contributed in an era when they were yet to be fully recognized,” said BGFA Executive Director Tarissa Tiberti. “Each of the works represents a time period when talent was under-appreciated because it was assigned to gender, as the wheels of equality we’re slowly, but purposefully, grinding.”
The exhibit will showcase works by major female artists including Mary Cassatt, Georgia O’Keeffe and Berthe Morisot. The exhibit will also include examples of artistic partnerships between men and women, such as the work of American Impressionist painter Lilian Westcott Hale and her husband Philip Leslie Hale.
The paintings are on loan from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
