Women Who Paint A Rebalancing Of Prejudices

Course synopsis

All too often we hear the question, why are there so few women painters?
This in itself is a demonstration of an ill-Informed Male centric Art World.
This course will seek to address this misconception by looking at the work of
four of the most successful and original women artists.

Each of these artists in their own way pioneers not just as woman in a
largely misogynistic world but more importantly develops new methods of
presenting and seeing art. They are each in their own way innovators and
experimenters bringing a fresh look and a different attitude to what in the
past has been a male preserve.

They are explorers going where no man or woman has been before…perhaps we
should ignore their gender and see only their art through their eyes, as they
boldly go to split an artistic infinitive.
