At the turn of the 20th century, images of women dominated French graphic arts but they weren't always the stylish, upper class ladies who reclined or relaxed with a cup of tea. This was a period of social upheaval, so this exhibition, part of the Elisabeth Dean Collection, consists of 100 pieces that show a more accurate range of a woman's experience during that time—prostitutes, morphine addicts and other less-than-idealized types.
The Hammer Museum will begin to offer free admission Feb. 9, 2014.
