1 course unit This course will investigate the role of women artists in the major movements in Western art from Impressionism to Postmodernism. The course will analyze questions that feminist art historians have posed: Have there been great women artists? How has “women’s work,” such as the decorative arts and crafts, been evaluated? Does art by women have common style or iconography? The intersection of art and gender will be examined in the careers of women artists from the well-known (Mary Cassatt and Georgia O’Keeffe) to the less-familiar (Gabriele Münter and Harmony Hammond).
