Scheherazade and her Sisters Exhibition (Postponed...

Presented by Crocker Art Museum at Crocker Art Museum

NOTE: The Museum is currently closed.

In One Thousand and One Nights, the strong-willed Scheherazade saves herself and many other women by outsmarting a brutal king with her fascinating tales. This exhibition of paintings explores fantasy images of the seductive power of women in late 19th- and early 20th-century art, and places them next to those of real working women of the Gilded Age, who survived in a world far removed from the Orientalist dreams and supernatural settings popular with the artists of this period. But, whether real or imaginary, these women, depicted with fierce conviction by a wide range of European and American artists, retain their allure even today.
