Indomitable Women Artists

March 12 @ 7:00 pm

America in the years 1929-1959 saw the growth of consumerism, a world war, changing roles for women, and Abstract Expressionism. New York City became the new “Center of the Art World” replacing Paris. Abstract Expressionist artists that usually come to mind are the male artists Pollock, DeKooning, and Rothko. Female artists had to surmount unbelievable odds for their art to be seen in galleries, then museums, and to be accepted by the male-dominated world of art. Five women were successful in achieving success and respect, and today are considered models for women artists who still confront odds in the art world. This age-old struggle was also conquered by an 18th-century artist Angelica Kauffman, who was one of the founders of the Royal Academy of Art in London. Comparison of the 18th and 20th centuries hurdles brings credence and respect, highlighting the works of Lee Krasner, Joan Mitchell, Grace Hartigan, and Kauffman. Presented by Jeanne Johnson, docent at the Princeton University Art Museum as well as Morven Museum and Gardens on Tuesday, March 12, at 7pm.
