It is hard for us to imagine the oppressed lives of single women in the first half of the twentieth century. Yet a few determined Australian women took a leap into the unknown and carved careers for themselves in Paris.

They studied, painted, and haunted galleries. They exhibited in the Paris Salons and in private galleries on the Left Bank. They brought back to Australia not only greatly enhanced skills but also Modernism – to a country that had barely heard of it.

This publication examines a selection of these pioneers, including some who have all but been forgotten, giving them back their rightful place in Australian art history.
