D don'ts for female artists as civilization marched across Europe Why did nuns have fun in medieval times This wisecracking but cleverly wise story of art is guaranteed to turn history on its head and maybe a few historians too Sprinkled throughou Oh wowthis book was published in 1998; coincidentally the year I started studying AP Art History I remember at least once our teacher trying to discuss the lack of women in our textbooks We acknowledged that it existed that women could of course be artists and as talented as men but because of a historical lack of opportunities that there just weren't that many women artists But really there were There are nearly 70 women artists in this book and that's just mostly Western artists and women that got some recognition in their time and then were forgotten in the history books or women who were remembered in the history books for a little while then forgotten There were loads and loads of female artists just intentionally not included in the canon and I rather resent that for a long time as long as I was being formally and officially education the excuse was women doing anything of import didn't really exist because sexism when in fact loads of amazing inspiring women existed and have just been conveniently left off the list written by white dudes AND they had to work twice as hard painting in between domestic responsibilities reliant on the approval and support of their fathers or spouses ridiculed and scorned for being women who did anything other than think about menoh godIt's not like I didn't know but I am always learning and even in 2018 it shocks and appalls This book was like 100 pages of GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR I know things are in many ways different now but I am really going to be intentional about making sure my nieces and also my nephew aren't surprised to find out that women women of all races in all places have been doing amazing things since time began without any recognition It's a crime and tragedy that we are just barely beginning to create an inclusive canon andor to understand creativity that doesn't spout from white dudes'How many women have been saying this and saying it better for hundreds of years Do what we can keep reading and learning uncovering and dusting off all these women It's like visiting some kooky old uncle and seeing his displaying empty soup tins all over and finding out he has a treasure chest full of actual treasures gathering dust in the basementGod and some of these guys were such monstrous jerks too especially when it came to women
