Great women painters

Linda Nochlin, an art historian, once asked, “Why have there been no great women painters?”

Marissa Moss, writing in The New York Times, says Nochlin and the book Great Women Painters answer the question in the same way—“by showing us a range of brilliant, talented women painters.

“Because the answer is that there have always been women artists….Women have always been creative. It’s just that their work, their talent hasn’t been valued.

Four women, four of the 300 artists featured in the book Great Women Painters, spoke April 19, 2023, at Arts & Letters Live in Dallas.
