A pioneering feminist scholar and specialist in nineteenth-century French and Italian painting, Norma Broude is known for critical reassessments of Impressionism and the work of Degas, Caillebotte, Cassatt, Seurat, and the Italian Macchiaioli. With Mary Garrard, she co-edited and contributed to four influential texts on feminist art history, co-curated the exhibition Claiming Space: Some American Feminist Originators for the AU Art Museum, and received an Art History Recognition Award from the Women’s Committee of the College Art Association. Broude is the author of The Macchiaioli: Italian Painters of the Nineteenth Century and Impressionism, A Feminist Reading: The Gendering of Art, Science, and Nature in the Nineteenth Century. Among her edited books are World Impressionism: The International Movement; Gustave Caillebotte and the Fashioning of Identity in Impressionist Paris; and Gauguin's Challenge: New Perspectives after Postmodernism.
