London Art Week Panel Discussion
For this talk Sacha Llewellyn (Independent Researcher and Curator, and Director, Liss Llewellyn Fine Art), Tania Sutton (Director, Osborne Samuel), Anthony Crichton-Stuart (Director, Agnews), Marco Fabio Apolloni (Director, Laocoon Gallery) and Ellie Smith (Research and Content Editor, Philip Mould & Company) will, together, examine how our perception of women artists has changed and how we are finally championing them. During the discussion, there will be a special focus on female artists over the last 100 years, and in particular the early to mid-20th century.
Our panellists will also touch on the early professional painters and why they were 'lost' for so many years.
Pioneers: 500 Years of Women in British Art explores the history of female artists in Britain who defied the status-quo. This multidisciplinary exhibition progresses from 16th century portraitists, to painters working at the forefront of the British avant-garde in the 20th century.
This active and constantly developing area of art history, which examines the historical significance of female artists, garners continual debate. We hope to contribute to this rich and evolving art historical discussion. The artists exhibited are individuals who we have researched over the last thirty years as art dealers but have never before displayed chronologically. This exhibition explores and re-presents 500 years of pioneering female artists who have been central to the development of British Art.
