Suzanne Valadon


Suzanne Valadon was a French painter and artists’ model. In 1894, Valadon became the first woman painter admitted to the Société Nationale des Beaux-Arts. She was also the mother of painter Maurice Utrillo. The subjects of her drawings and paintings are mostly female nudes, female portraits, still lifes, and landscapes. Valadon never actually attended the art academy and therefore was never confined within a certain tradition of painting style. Valadon spent nearly 40 years of her life as an artist.
