Interesting point. There is clearly an issue when women are underrepresented in a particular social group (recognized artists, in this case). It is just as problematic for women's bodies to be controlled by men for an art form and for women's bodies to be used disproportionately more than men's in art. Women's bodies are, once again, objects for male pleasure and viewing.

The dearth of famous paintings by female artists isn't art history news, but after recently seeing the Guerilla Girls poster, Do Women Have to be Naked to get into the Met Museum?, I was curious - which woman in art history was first deemed a famous painter? Introducing Lavinia Fontana (1552-1614) of Bologna, Italy. Renaissance art was informed by the guild system in Florence and Siena, which educated artists, helped with commissions, and discouraged female artists.
GUERRILLA GIRLS POSTER
Guerrilla Girls ad on New York City's buses and billboards, 1989.
The Guerrilla girls are a feminist art collective which seek to bring attention to sexism particularly as it manifests itself in the world of art. They are best known for their simple, straightforward, and often humorous posters, which clearly convey the message across to the audience. Although they have gained some fame over the years; the identities of the members of the collective are unknown to the general public.

María Rosalía Rita de Castro
Rosalía de Castro. Nada en Santiago de Compostela no século XIX. Poetisa e novelista que escribiu tanto en galego cama en castelán. Foi unha das figuras emblemáticas do "rexurdimento galego" non so pola súa aportación literaria senón por converterse nun símbolo do pobo galego.

Ruth Mathilda Anderson was a photographer of the Hispanic Society. She made very beautifyl and sensitive photos of my land, Galicia, in the north west of Spain. She could capture the essence of people in the early twenties. Nobody did it before her, and after, few people could capture something similar. A pioneer from Nebraska.
