Portland Art Museum says
KATHLEEN NICHOLSON
PROFESSOR EMERITUS, DEPARTMENT OF THE HISTORY OF ART & ARCHITECTURE, UNIVERSITY OF OREGON

In her 1971 groundbreaking essay “Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” art historian Linda Nochlin challenged herself to uncover why women were missing from Western art history narratives, citing barriers to art instruction and exclusion from the academic art establishment as the most immediate answers. Happily, missing women artists have been found and have been given their due place in the canon.

This lecture will explore the topic of women in France from the 17th- 19th centuries, through current research on the status of women in general, on women as subjects in art, and on women artists like Rosalba Carriera and Elizabeth Vigee Lebrun.
