Ep. 40 - N&S Celebrates: Women’s History Month
Mar 31st, 2021 by Notes & Strokes
We are excited for this week's episode because it's an opportunity to celebrate an underrepresented group of creators - Women! Female representation in the arts has existed for centuries, but as a society, we've largely ignored it. In honor of National Women's History Month (in the US), we're giving them their centuries-overdue attention!
While there's no way we can cover every female contributor or contribution to the arts, we hope that this episode can whet your appetite for further exploration of the many women who have created works of beauty over the years.
Artemisia Gentileschi (1593-1653): Self-portrait as Saint Catherine of Alexandria (1615-17)
Elisabeth-Louise Vigee Le Brun (1755-1842): Marie-Antoinette de Lorraine-Habsbourg, queen of France, and her children (1787)
Helen Frankenthaler (1928-2011): Mountains and Sea (1952)
Isobella Leonarda (1620-1704): Sonata Duodecima, Op. 16, No. 12 (published 1693)
Princess Anna Amalia of Prussia (1723-87): Flute Sonata
Errollyn Wallen (b.1958): Cello Concerto
