It is well known that Somerville and Ross were deeply influenced by the art of fin-de-siècle Paris, but little scholarship explores their representations of that city. This chapter argues that the individual’s ability to exist within the city is firstly determined by one’s relationship to economics, which is, fundamentally, shaped by one’s gender. For Somerville and Ross, Paris in the nineteenth century is a place of artistic possibilities that is not equally available.

Keywords:   Somerville and Ross, French Leave, Fin-de-Siècle, Walter Bejamin, Bohemianism
