ART-146 - Women in Art

Surveys the roles of women in art as subjects, patrons, and artists. Presented in chronological order starting from Paleolithic Era's hunter-gatherer societies to the digital age of the 21st Century to help show that the creation of art is reflecting the materials, societal concerns, technology, belief systems, and education of its time. Topics will also include the duality of female imagery in art that reflects both secular and religious ideas of women as saints, goddesses, wives, mothers, mistresses, witches, and sinners.
