At the end of the 20th century, Niki de Saint Phalle was barely mentioned in art books for the benefit of her husband, Jean Tinguely, a testimony to the misogyny that prevailed in the field of art history until the end of the 20th century. In 1961, the artist began her series of "shootings". She declares: "I shot (with a rifle) because I liked to see the painting bleeding". Then, in the mid-1960s, Niki de Saint Phalle began to create her famous "nanas", female warriors who dominate the world. In her works, Niki de Saint Phalle claims femininity, even matriarchy, and at the same time acknowledges the violence of gender relations, a violence that she herself has experienced. This multi-talented artist, now recognised by all, is presented during our walk on Paris' rebellious women.
