Art History: Women Pioneers of Modernism
Dominated for too long by a few iconic names and reputation, the emergence of Modernism in early twentieth century Europe is a complex story in which women often played a leading part. Inspired by the Royal Academy exhibition, this course visits some of these women artists and considers their contribution and legacy.
