The fact of speaking about famous women artists clearly connotates our time.

I think that there is no difference in gendre and age (not to mention race) when dealing with intelligence or artistic skills.

You can find geniouses among women and men. Analogously, intelligence is randomly spread in time: you can find stupid young people and clever old people and viceversa in the same proportions. Nature does not distinguish. Society, yes.

And this is what we are talking about in the end: history.



"...Tu non se' in terra, sì come tu credi;

ma folgore, fuggendo il proprio sito,

non corse come tu ch'ad esso riedi».

S'io fui del primo dubbio disvestito

per le sorrise parolette brevi,

dentro ad un nuovo più fu' inretito,

(Beatrice to Dante, Canto 1, Paradiso, From the "Divina Commedia)


So, here are some "famous" artists in the sense that they are known by collectors, Museums and perhaps specialists. Which is also a connotation of our time, too (I am referring to "fame"). Because, how many people know the name of any famous female painter or sculptor by heart? Easier that you know some famous woman writer...

Which is certainly not just, because of the quality of their art. Hence these pages.


Did you know? The first lady to get a university degree was Elena Lucrezia Cornaro who got a Philosophy degree in Venice, Italy, in 1678
