This seminar focuses on the achievements made by women in the visual arts from the Middle Ages to the present. Besides exploring the artistic development of individual artists in Western culture, we will examine the conditions and contexts in which these artists worked and their relationships to society and to each other. In addition, we will consider how their works relate to the broader artistic concerns of the times. Eight sessions.
