Fierce Females in Art

self-portrait by Artemisia Gentileschi

Women have long been the subject of art, often depicted as nothing more than objects of desire. How do images of women change when women become the creators? This program examines the history of women in art in brief and then explores the lives, careers, and works of several major women artists from the Renaissance to the twentieth century, including Artemisia Gentileschi, Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, and Elizabeth Catlett.

The presenter for this session is Jane Oneail, an independent scholar with a master’s in Art History from Boston University and a master’s in Art in Education from Harvard University. Oneail has served as Executive Director at the League of New Hampshire Craftsmen and Senior Educator at the Currier Museum of Art, and has taught at the college level for more than a decade.

The presentation will be delivered via Zoom. Join the meeting here.
