Books with Art
Friday 24 September 2021

10.30am – 11.30am


Over the cenuties Western Art History has been the domain of male artists. Spanning 500 years, art critic Jennifer Higgie addresses this anomaly. Part biography, part cultural history, female artists are brought to the fore. Their individual stories exemplify rebellion, revolution and resilience in the face of social, cultural and religious constraints.
