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

How have male and female artists depicted motherhood? And how have women artists perceived the impact of motherhood on the art they produce?

After the break, Belle Smith discusses the art of Berthe Morisot, who defied the social norms of her time to join the Parisian avant-garde. She depicted scenes of motherhood and private, intimate moments of women's lives.
