Femmes au miroir: une histoire de l'autoportrait féminin

The English historian Frances Borzello highlights the variety and originality of the representations in this fascinating exploration of the female self-portrait, from the first manifestations in the 11th century to the unashamedly modest works of Frida Kahlo or Cindy Sherman.

Description

Demonstrate their skills, challenge the masters of the past, get out of the imposed artistic framework, defend its artistic conviction...Far from being a mere reflection sent back by the mirror, the self-portrait is a tool of introspection frequently used by artists since the Middle Ages, for multiple purposes. Among these, women have also recourse to this practice: what have they sought to show over the centuries?
