Course Description

Despite accounting for only seven percent of the holdings of New York’s Metropolitan Museum, artworks by women in a range of media—painting, sculpture, photography, and even “craft” works traditionally practiced by women—have gained acceptance and respect in the art world. Understanding women’s important contributions of this kind is enriching, inspiring, and long overdue. Women artists explore subjects perennial in art: portraits, genre scenes, landscapes, mythology, and religious subjects, but they also bring new images into art. These images are rooted deeply in the lives of women—children, home life, and marriage. Join Ms. Angevine for a survey of these unique images in works from the Middle Ages to the art culture of our own day. (ONLINE)
