In Depth....Further Study
Don't stop here.
This course is a beginning. It is the most basic introduction to the history of women in the world of art. Now that you
have an understanding of the way women became artists, (the way they fought to do their work, and how) they made
art that was meaningful to them, despite the obstacles that were thrown in their way, you may be interested in finding
out more about the lives of the women in this book and others.
Further study will prove to you that as fascinating as the art these women created was, the lives they led were more
than just biographies to read. The lives of women artists, and most artists, male or female for that matter, are filled
with enigma, distress, extremely high highs, and low lows. Not every artist is a bundle of emotional raw nerves, but artists
are often more in tune with their feelings, and thus they live their lives on the large scale. If every life is a picture
show, then certainly the life of an artist is an academy award winner.
I encourage you to take the time to investigate and find out more about the women who have struck a chord with you personally.
If there is one artist which you have read of that makes you inquisitive, or makes your mind feel it has expanded by knowing
of her, then read about her life and struggles, and you may just find a kindred soul who speaks to you not only
through her art, but through her story as well.
