It is time to refresh what you know about history and start to know who are the women who have changed the course of art forever.
Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, 1755 to 1842
Louise Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun is a self-taught artist and made a name for herself despite going through serious obstacles. She was also very active despite navigating through the most problematic time in European history.
Mary Cassatt, 1844 to 1926
Among the three female artists and at the same time, the only American who have been associated with Impressionism officially is Mary Cassatt. Apart from that, she was an advisor and helping to introduce European art to the major art collectors in the US. Cassatt has a strong belief that painting is something that should reflect modern life.
Georgia O’Keefe, 1887 to 1986
She’s a seminal figure of the American Modernism. As a matter of fact, in 1915, she was among the first American artists to ever create pure abstract art, which is in contrast to dominant realism movement.
Frida Kahlo, 1907 to 1954
Frida is an artist who was fierce with her self-portraits that feature her iconic unibrow as well as mustache. André Breton actually described her as the founder of Surrealism. Without a doubt, paintings of Kahlo are both confrontational and seductive.
