Context brings the brightest minds to your living room with perspective-shifting online lectures.
A lecture jam-packed with women artists, examples of their work, brief biographies, and a few damning quotes from men in the art world demonstrating what these women were up against. It was a world where women were "allowed" to exhibit at, but not attend the Royal Academy (until 1936); one in which praise was dished out reluctantly, such as she "painted with a manliness" -- and where women might study art (at the Royal Female School of Art) but there was no life drawing, only draped plaster casts. Only did the Slade School and friendships with the Pre-Raphaelites break down some of the barriers.
Hattie Bennett never disappoints! She packs her art talks with great background on the artist and the painting. I always come always come away with new knowledge and thing or someone to research because of her talks.
I love art and art history and to learn more about those women who were never mentioned when I was taking art history was a joy. I always leave a lecture from Hattie knowing more and wanting to dig deeper on my own.
