What you'll learn in this art history class:

Through museum and gallery visits, online images, readings, and discussion, students will survey the development of women artists, primarily in Europe and the U.S.A., from the late middle ages to the contemporary art of today. Over the eight weeks of the course, we will highlight the lives and works of art of eight extraordinary artists, Hildegard von Bingen, Lavinia Fontana, Artemisia Gentileschi, Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, Rosa Bonheur, Augusta Savage, Helen Frankenthaler, and Shirin Neshat. We will look at the development of the business of art through artist guilds and studios, religious vs. secular patronage, and the art market as it has changed over several centuries, all through the lens of the woman artist. We will consider the evolving role of women depicted in visual arts as muse and patron. Students will consider the ever changing depiction of the female form in art over more than 1,000 years, and the impact of religious, political, and sexual power structures on the same.

Textbook: (Recommended but not required) Women Artists: Works from the National Museum of Women in the Arts, 2nd Ed. by Nancy G. Heller, National Museum of Women in the Arts, Washington, DC in association with Rizzoli International Publishers, 2000.
