The Musée du Luxembourg highlights the pioneering artists of the Roaring Twenties

For the new year, the Musée du Luxembourg combines “artist” with the feminine. Their names are Suzanne Valadon, Gerda Wegener or Tamara de Lempicka and testify to a new modernity where women can finally run a workshop, paint naked bodies or even… wear pants. Coming from the first generation of women to be able to enter art schools, the artists of the Roaring Twenties were true models of emancipation who allowed the evolution of some of the greatest avant-garde currents. After Vivian Maier at the Jeu de Paume or Georgia O’Keeffe at Beaubourg, there is no longer any doubt, the girls are regaining control of the museums in Paname. “Who run the world? GIRLS!”
