Vrouwelijke kunstenaars

In this course, we put women artists in the spotlight. We focus chronologically on key examples in all disciplines from painting to photography and performance. The woman as model and muse in art we know by now. But where is the female artist? She seems minimally present in Western art history, but she is there! In this course, we put them in the spotlight. We start roughly at the Renaissance with one of the most famous female artists: Artemisia Gentileschi and continue with the likes of Judith Leyster, Berthe Morisot, Frida Kahlo, Judith Leyster, Georgia O'Keefe, Alice Neel, Marlene Dumas, Rachel Ruys, Cindy Sherman and many more. All brought to you by our male lecturer, but female-artist-expert: Barry Heinrichs. By the end of the course, you will be aware of the most important female artists who existed and why they are so little known.
