Project description

The craft of writing, across all genres, is the most recognised, from Sappho to Rosalía de Castro in poetry, the captivating work of Saint Teresa of Jesus, the narrative written under the pseudonym of Cecilia Böhl de Faber, or in the travel literature of Marie Catherine D’Aulnoy in the 17th century. There are other equally interesting examples, such as the case of great illustrators like Luisa Morales or Ana Heylan. The exhibition highlights the work of translators into other languages carried out by women, first in their family environment and, from the end of the 19th century onwards, in a professional manner, such as Joaquina García Balmaseda. So-called master printers in the art of typography are also important, as Manuela Contera, widow of Joaquín Ibarra, and the birth of the first feminist movements.
