On this guided walk, discover the 19th century artists’ entourages, to highlight the crucial role that their families (wives, sisters…), assistants, or servants often played in their career. Thanks to various artist homes and workshops, the guided tour addresses several forms of support work pivotal to artistic creation (care work, domestic work, creative collaboration, etc.).

Apolline Malevez has a P.h.D in history of art. Her research focuses mainly on the representations of domestic life and the private sphere in Belgium at the end of the 19th century, which she studies namely from a gender perspective.
