From Model to Maker

22 September 2009 – 22 June 2010
Three linked programmes which examine the relationships between women and the arts. The Muse and the Ideal: How and why women have been idealised in art from the time of Classical Greece and how these ideas have persisted into the 21st century. Real Women: Why artists have chosen to present unidealised images of women and what these images imply. Women as Makers: This programme looks at the art and design made by women who have been working in the visual arts since the 19th century.
