Welcome to Women ‘n Art, a website committed to the role of women in the arts and culture. Not only female artists, but also those women who contributed to art and culture with their non-artistic works.
The main objective is to talk about the women in the plastic arts, however, from time to time we will highlight the work of other talented women who have developed their work in other artistic fields or that have make some contribution to art/culture.
I’ve always been an art lover, and as a woman I’ve always asked why in the museums we cannot find easily the work of the great female artists. Many people can’t even name five women artists, our gender have been put aside by history, making us forget the achievements of many talented artists. Curiously when you enter in a museum you can see many paintings and sculptures of women nudity, but in general are work of male artists.
My intention with this web is share some information about my favourite women artists and the problems related to women and the world of art.
I hope you enjoy it!
