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

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.
