MARIE CAZIN

FRENCH, 1844–1924


Encouraged at an early age by her parents to practice drawing, Marie Guillet attended the École Gratuite de Dessin pour les Jeunes Filles and trained with several artists, including Jean-Charles Cazin (who would later become her husband). She exhibited extensively at the Salon, presenting paintings from 1876 to 1882 and sculpture thereafter. Her most famous work, Les jeunes filles (The Young Girls), was exhibited at the 1886 Salon and purchased by the state in 1899. She created several monumental sculptures, including a memorial for her husband.

A fully illustrated catalogue, Women Artists in Paris, 1850–1900, has been published by the American Federation of Arts and Yale University Press. Along with an art-historical overview by curator Laurence Madeline, the catalogue includes essays by Jane R. Becker, collections management associate, Metropolitan Museum of Art; Richard Kendall, former curator at large, Clark Art Institute; Bridget Alsdorf, associate professor, History of Art, Princeton University; and Vibeke Hansen, curator, Nasjonalmuseet, Oslo.
