Event description

Description

This event is the first of two, linked Art History Day Schools. Tickets are available for each individual session (£30 each) or as a pair (£55). To book both days click HERE.

The history of women in art has tended to be one of defiance and struggle against dispiriting odds, with very few exceptions to encourage them in the fight. In association with the Women with Vision and Women of the RWA, these two, linked day schools explore the achievement of women artists in sculpture and portrait painting - both considered until recently the prerogative of the male hand and gaze.

Find out how women such as Vanessa Bell and Dod Procter, Barbara Hepworth, Elisabeth Frink and Maggie Hambling asserted their abilities in these challenging disciplines, not only matching the skills of their male contemporaries but pushing the boundaries of art itself.

These day schools are led by Dr Justine Hopkins - a freelance lecturer in Art History. Previously, Dr Hopkins has lectured at the Victoria and Albert Museum; Bristol, London, Oxford and Cambridge Universities; the Tate, National and National Portrait Galleries; Sotheby’s, Christies’ and assorted independent institutions, and is a registered lecturer for NADFAS.
