A Woman's Touch: Women Artists and Designers 1600-2000
- Where:Seminar Room One, Sackler Centre
4 WEEK SHORT COURSE: Women have been making art since Antiquity, but their contribution to the principal movements of art and design is still comparatively little known. This course examines the social and historical forces that have shaped womens’ experiences and work.
Until the end of the 19th century many women found it difficult to get training, recognition or access to exhibitions, and much of the work that they produced focused on the 'lesser' arts such as watercolour, embroidery, and illustration. And even in the 20th century it has often been hard for women to be accepted within the fiercely masculine worlds of architecture, product design and the international avant-garde. The course will focuses in depth on significant practitioners such as Angelica Kauffman, Mary Cassatt, Eileen Gray, Lee Miller and Rachel Whiteread.
