“Why have there been no great women artists?
Or have there?…
Women have been involved in artistic creation ever since the origins of Western art, whether as subject or as artists themselves. Yet, it is undeniable that their contribution has been, if not ignored, at least vastly underestimated: even now, the Pantheon of the greatest geniuses in art history seems to be an all-male affair.
Philippe Géhin will look at the extent of this bias and the reasons behind it, first examining the representation of women in art, and then looking at a few mostly forgotten female artists prior to the 20th century.”
Do come and give your views over a convivial glass of wine / cup of coffee and among people of a like mind.
