LADYDRINKS PARIS: PRIVATE TOUR OF THE LOUVRE OF WOMEN-ONLY ARTISTS FRIDAY APRIL 12TH 2019

Friday, April 12th, LadyDrinks Womens Networking heads to Paris for a private tour of the Louvre Museum with a docent. The theme of the tour is 'women only artists' followed by drinks on the wing of the Museum.


On background, the networking platform has been on 2 private tours of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City on the same theme. We have also travelled to Washington DC to National Museum of Women in the Arts, a museum entirely dedicated to women artists.

On all three occasions, we learned about the societial and formal training hurdles women artists had to overcome in to order to become respectable and bankable artists. It was a real teaching moment for anyone who has ever uttered to themselves "I can't."

We also learned about the importance of women SPONSORING other women's careers. Vigee Le Brun was one of four woman granted admission to the prestigious Académie de Saint-Luc for formal art training. Marie Antoinette sponsored that important introduction.

In cooperation with the American Friends of the Louvre, a docent leads us on a private tour of the Louvre‘s women-only artists on Friday April 12th. Meet at 6pm just outside the Pyramid marking the Louvre. Afterwards, we will enjoy cocktails on the terrace of the Richelieu Wing of the Museum.

This tour is our anchor event for the Paris trip. Other events will be built around the Louvre visit.
