Recovering Women’s Legacies: Artists, Dealers, Collectors, and Patrons • Part Two: Digital Research Methodologies
Mme. X: Women Collectors in Provenance Research

Elizabeth Gorayeb, Executive Director, The Wildenstein Plattner Institute

Jennifer Gimblett, Senior Researcher and Project Manager, The Paintings of Paul Gauguin, 1891–1903, The Wildenstein Plattner Institute

In preparation for the recently released Gauguin: Catalogue Raisonné of the Paintings, 1891–1903, the WPI research team made a determined effort to recover the identities of women owners within the provenances. Whenever possible, the first names of women were added alongside those of their husbands or other male relations; however, this frequently presented a number of challenges. Using case studies from the Paul Gauguin catalogue raisonné, we will explore some of the obstacles inherent to researching female collectors in the 19th and early 20th century.
