A BRIEF SURVEY OF WOMEN IN ART
Ten of the best female artists from the last 500 years.
Who said women couldn’t paint! The historical gender imbalance in European art has been no different from many other professions. While this presentation will not rehearse the cultural and social reasons for this, it will highlight ten of the most successful female artists who have made a real impact in a largely male dominated activity since the period of the Renaissance.

Our subjects will include:
Artemisia Gentileschi
Angelica Kauffmann
Elizabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun
Berthe Morisot
Mary Cassatt
Gwen John
Vanessa Bell
Laura Knight
Frida Kahlo
Bridget Riley
