How many female artists do you know? Who makes art history? Did women even work as artists before the twentieth century? And what is baroque anyway? The English art historian and curator, Katy Hessel, delivers a much-lauded chapter to art history and a kick to its gender bias against the male dominance of art.
Experience the renaissance glittering Sofonisba Anguissola, the radical work of Harriet Powers in nineteenth-century America and the artist who truly invented the Readymade.
Explore the Dutch Golden Age, the astonishing work of post-war artists in Latin America, and the female artists defining art in the 2020s. Get your eyes opened to many art forms that are often overlooked or dismissed.
From the Cornish coast to Manhattan, Nigeria to Japan, this is the story of art for our time - one with women at its heart, brought together for the first time by the creator of @thegreatwomenartists.
