ID : 86363   
« back to classes page
We’ll start in 17th century Holland with genre painter Judith Leyster. Nearly lost to history, she was accidentally rediscovered in 1893. In Germany we’ll encounter 19th century painter Gabriele Münter. In 20th century Mexico, we’ll find Italian photographer Tina Modotti, living among the humble masses to document the burgeoning Socialist movement. Russian-born sculptor Louise Nevelson became an American émigré and made her name with large, masculine-looking sculptures. 20thcentury Argentine painter Leonor Fini has been called a surrealist, but she might take exception with that label. And 21st century American sculptor Lee Bontecou will complete this sampler. Across the centuries and the globe, we’ll gain insight into the forces that drive women to become artists and the prices they pay for their careers.
