In 1877, Marie Bashkirtseff enters the women pupils sector at the Académie Julian.
The Académie Julian, founded by Rodolphe Julian in 1868, was the only institution that admitted women pupils for the study of art.
The thought of women painting the human body from nude models, was not easy to assimilate for the Victorian times mentality.
.In that same painting, with which Marie was not feeling satisfied, she painted herself turning her back to the audience.
Marie Bashkirtseff, who Bojidar Karagueergevitch on later decades described as a true apostle of feminism, demanded from the pages of the feminist newspaper ‘La Citoyenne’ (The female citizen) that women enter on an equal footing with men to the State School of Fine Arts.
.founder of the Droits de la Femme Association (Women´s Rights Association), who was the editor of La Citoyenne. Marie Bashkirtseff used to publish her articles there under the pen name of Pauline Orrel.
At the Academy, her teachers would be the painters Tony Robert-Fleury, Gustave Boulanger and Rodolphe Julian himself.
