Women's History Month

Women's History Month

March is Women's History Month - a great time to celebrate all the inspiring women in art that have made a lasting impression not only on the art industry, but on the entire world.

1. Frida Khalo.

We couldn't make a list of influential female artists for Women's History Month without mentioning possibly the most iconic faces in art herself, Frida Khalo. Frida Khalo's self portraits have become so iconic, they are instantly recognisable by many people. She's often even recognised by those who have no interest in the art world at all. After an accident that left her bed bound, Khalo had very little subject inspiration and so turned to producing paintings in her own image. She has provided inspiration for many artists up to this day. Many have followed in her footsteps by creating images of her, featuring her iconic mono-brow and thick, dark hair.

2. Georgia O'Keeffe

Georgia O'Keeffe is best known for her stunning paintings of flowers and natural landscapes which pioneered the American modernism movement in the 20th Century. She was known as the "mother of American modernism" and has therefore become somewhat of a feminist icon due to her success in a male dominated industry. O'Keeffe created thousands of works over the course of her career which are still celebrated and used as a source of inspiration by young artists.

3. Käthe Kollwitz

Käthe Kollwitz's work focuses on the devastating effects of war. Her work often emits a sombre and melancholic aura and can therefore be empathetic for those who have been affected by the horrors of war. The use of negative space allows more room for emotion to move around her pieces which then adds further depth to her pieces.

4. Kara Walker

Kara Walker is more of a modern choice for this list. Walker explores a huge range of subjects in her work from race and sexuality. She delves into even deeper subjects such as peoples identity. She creates beautiful silhouette cut outs of figures. These pieces manage to tell complex stories even though they are limited by a lack of facial detail and colours.

5. Nancy Grossman

Nancy Grossman is perhaps best known for her sculptures of heads using wood and leather. Her work was/is rather ahead of it's time as it discusses themes of gender fluidity and identity. The pieces are made from found materials and are often described as self portraits despite the masculine appearance of them.
