Eva Gonzalès was a French Impressionist painter who was active in the late 19th century. She was a student of Edgar Degas and exhibited her work at the Impressionist exhibitions of 1879, 1880, and 1881. Gonzalès was known for her portraits, still lifes, and genre scenes, and her work was characterized by its delicate brushwork and muted colors. She was one of the few women to participate in the Impressionist movement and was highly regarded by her peers for her talent and dedication to her art. Despite her success, Gonzalès received relatively little recognition during her lifetime and her work is not as well known as that of some of her contemporaries.
