Since ancient times, women artists have been creating alongside their male counterparts but it seems that only recently has the women artist movement come roaring back. As recently as 1986 women artist were not even listed in “Janson’s History of Art,” the leading textbook.
Past women artist like Frida Kahlo, Georgia O'Keeffe, Cindy Sherman, Rachel Whiteread, Joan Mitchell, Yayoi Kusama, Bridget Riley, Agnes Martin, Jenny Holzer, and Barbara Kruger helped pave the way for their contemporaries: Ruth Asawa, Sonia Gomes; Shinique Smith; Perle Fine; and Eva Hesse. Las Laguna Gallery received hundreds of submissions and this resulting group of women artists appear to be the ones to watch for the year 2020.
