Women in Art with Bob Moulder

Ref: C2346460

This course will study the careers of a selection of women artists, focusing on one particular artwork per artist. We will consider the issues they had to confront to establish careers and the extent to which, in some instances, close association with male artists helped or hindered. The artists to feature will include: Constance Mayer; Marie Bashkirtseff; Laura Knight; Hannah Höch; Frieda Kahlo; Emily Carr; Dorothea Tanning and Paula Rego. There is scope to include additional artists.
