Women in the picture is Module two of our three-module course ‘More than muses: A feminist guide to art history’.

Find out whether the female nude can survive #MeToo; and how women leaders are redressing the balance when it comes to the representation of women artists.

About

Many male artists have felt the urge to paint the female nude! Belle Smith discusses some iconic representations of the female nude by male and female artists. She explores how contemporary female artists such as Jenny Saville and Cornelia Parker have challenged the ideal of the female nude, in paintings that are personal, brave, iconic, raw or erotic.

After the break, Christina Bradstreet discusses Degas’s representation of women in the context of 19th-century ideas of gender and race.
