Caroline J. Nye Excellent. One thought- we're strong on contemporary (particularly Bourgeois & Nevelson!) - who's strong on the classical eras? Let's see some of the women that laid the foundation.

Luisa Roldan
Rosalba Carriera
Mary Cassatt
Berthe Morisot

Jean Luongo Matthiessen Susan Weil.
Yesterday at 12:47pm 

Vigen Galstyan The Russians of course! Olga Rozanova, Natalia Goncharova, Alexandra Exter and Vera Mukhova (the most famous Soviet sculptor). You might wants to add some early impressionists such as Camille Claudel, Berthe Morrisot as well as modernists like Sonia Delaneau, barbara Hepworth, Barbara de Lempicka and my favorite abstract expressionist after Gorky, Helen Frankenthaler. And maybe Leonara Finni...
Yesterday at 12:48pm 

Vigen Galstyan sorry, that's Mukhina, not Mukhova...
Yesterday at 12:49pm 

Caroline J. Nye Tamara de Lempicka, not Barbara- check the blog, we've got a lot of great contemporary women artists, let's fill in the history ;)
Yesterday at 12:59pm 

Vigen Galstyan Ooops... did I write Barbara? Well, they ARE history. None of these names are what I'd call contemporary... or do you want even earlier ones like Artemisia Gentileschi?
Yesterday at 1:30pm 

Caroline J. Nye Yes! More more!
Yesterday at 1:50pm 

Susan McCartney Found long, long, long list via Google: It goes way back....

Atemesia Gentileschi is perhaps the most famous of the very early ones. Rosa Bonheure was very popular indeed in her 19th century heyday - there's a great horse-fair painting of hers at the Met...
Yesterday at 2:51pm 

Caroline J. Nye I had forgotten about that resource- thanks mom!

Yesterday at 7:14pm 

[And more were added on Jerry's page]

Ardele Lister i know it's april already but i think the celebration of great women artists deserves at least a decade so i'll continue: joan snyder, nancy spero, nancy holt, susan silas,chrysanne stathacos,liz magor (canada), joyce wieland (canada), martha wilson, and then there are some other great women filmmakers of old like 1940s and 50s director nell shipman (MOMA has some of her stuff) who depicted women living in the forests with bears! (see my article in an old Heresies issue on media art), maya deren, .... isn't there a giant list of 'em on guerrilla girls' websites? after all, they take on dead women artists' names/careers... i think. we mustn't forget kathryn bigelow who has certainly slogged thru the trenches to make her vision in film... and finally broken the damn glass ceiling at the academy awards... to be cont'd.
