The Hammer Museum presents Tea and Morphine: Women in Paris, 1880 to 1914 on view January 26 – May 18, 2014. The exhibition draws on the Elisabeth Dean Collection of French prints, a major promised gift to the UCLA Grunwald Center for the Graphic Arts, as well as the Grunwald’s existing holdings to explore fin-de-siècle representations of women. While women were often exalted and idealized in French graphic arts of the period, the exhibition explores how grittier images, whether of morphine addicts or prostitutes, began to dramatize a more nuanced and often troubling range of female experience.
