Recovering Women’s Legacies: Artists, Dealers, Collectors, and Patrons • Part One: Archives Revealed
Complicated Legacies: A Look at Women Dealers and Collectors from the WPI Digital Archives

Sandrine Canac, Director of Digital Archival Projects, The Wildenstein Plattner Institute
Samantha Rowe, Digital Archivist and Research Associate, The Wildenstein Plattner Institute

This session will draw from materials found in the WPI Digital Archives and Sales Catalogue Database to consider the underappreciated role of women dealers and collectors of the 19th and early 20th centuries in the global art market. This introduction to the WPI’s digital resources, which contain the archives of prominent French dealers and collectors and a vast assortment of digitized pre-1945 sales catalogues, contribute to art historical research that investigates the complicated legacies of women in the arts.
