WOMEN ARTISTS AUCTIONED AT SOTHEBYS ONLINE

FINALLY THE NEGLECTED FAIR SEX IS BACK ON THE AGENDA

 

HELEN FRANKETHALER



WITH NAMES SUCH AS BROWN, TANNING, RUYSCH THE SALE HAS HIGH HOPES TO BE A GREAT EVENT. WOMEN’S PLACE AND POSITION IN OUR WORLD IS NOW REVISED AND RISING AND WOMEN ARTISTS ARE FINDING THEIR TRUE POSITION IN ART CIRCLES AND AUCTIONS.

WE SELECT A FINE PAINTING OF FRANKENTHALER FOR THIS ARTICLE ALONGSIDE THE ONLY PIECE BY A WOMAN ARTIST WE HAVE IN OUR COLLECTION.

THE FREEDOM OF WOMEN AND THEIR PAIN IS WELL PAINTED BY EUTEPRE IONIDES ( 1816-1892). THIS IS FINE OIL ON CANVAS BY A WOMAN ARTIST OF LONDON PAINTED CIRCA 1860 IN SUPPORT OF THE STRUGGLE TO ABOLISH SLAVERY  OF WOMEN DURING THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE.
