From the Instructor:
In this class, we will explore various issues surrounding women as artists and as subjects of art. We will examine how their roles have been shaped and defined by social, economic and historic pressures. The course will include a survey of women artists from ancient times to the present and will look at significant male artists in the context of that exploration. But we will also, and perhaps more importantly, investigate the art historical methods that have been used to construct a survey of women artists. Do we consider women artists as part of a mainstream narrative? Or do we, instead, take a different, perhaps feminist approach, in examining their work and working lives as separate from a male-oriented canon?
