Breaking into the boy’s club is Module one of our three module course ‘More than muses: A feminist guide to art history’.

Why have women artists not achieved the status of their male counterparts? What barriers have they faced and how have some women beaten the odds?

About

Discover two side-lined female artists. Carol Jacobi discusses the status of artist and poet Elizabeth Siddal, best known as the wife and muse of Dante Gabriel Rossetti.

After the break, Carol Jacobi presents new research on the painter Isabel Rawsthorne, whose art has been eclipsed by her renown as muse to giants of the Modernist canon, among them Jacob Epstein, Alberto Giacometti, and Pablo Picasso.
