ROSLYN HARBOR, NY.- "The Subject is Women: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism" offers a lavish viewing of works by women and works depicting women. This sumptuous exhibition will demonstrate how artists of these movements and eras depict women — and how women artists depict themselves. The works of the show, many of them vibrant oils, include renowned masters such as Cassatt, Degas, Pissarro, Renoir as well as others. Degas is represented by "Danseuse" (buste), 1900; Pissarro by "La Marché des Gisors, rue Cappeville", 1894-95; Renoir by "Jeunes filles aux lilas", c. 1890 and "Femme nue aux coussins verts", 1909 and Alfred Stevens by "Le Masque japonais", c. 1877.

Works by women Impressionists and Post Impressionists include Mary Cassatt’s "Lyontine in a Pink Fluffy Hat", 1898; "Berthe Morisot, Portrait de Louise Reisner", 1881 and Marie Laurencin’s "Women in the Forest", 1920. The 57 works selected for "The Subject is Women: Impressionism and Post-Impressionism" are drawn from remarkable public and private collections. The exhibition opens on January 10 and remains on view through February 28.
