Until the 1970s, an Art History student could well believe there were no women artists in the entire history of Western Art. Research over the past few decades has changed the subject of Art History and the Art we see in galleries and museums. This lecture will discover Old Mistresses and look at contemporary women artists from Artemesia Gentileschi to Tracey Emin.
