A Woman's Perspective in Art: At NMWA, Life From a Woman's Point of View

Date: March 26, 2007
Author: Blake Gopnik
QUOTE: By the standards of Renaissance critics -- all of them men -- many of the 15 women in this exhibition don't score particularly high. When it came to realistic renderings of light, space and human forms, and to assembling all three into coherent compositions with attractively brushed surfaces, many Renaissance women were no more than middling good. True, there were plenty of male artists who weren't a jot better. (Including some of the men who trained these women -- struggling fathers, often, who counted on a daughter's skills to stand in for her dowry.) But it's also true that those very few Renaissance artists who did achieve supreme results -- or what art history has chosen to count as such -- were all male.
