Women Artists in History

We're using this space to showcase the work of women artists down through the centuries. Over time we will do our best to make this list comprehensive. If you have a famous artist to recommend, please send us mail.

We would like to create a network of women who are interested in the work of women artists. Our dream is that eventually all the women on our list will have their own web page. If any of these women strike your fancy and you decide to devote a web page to their work, please let us know and we will link our page to yours.

While you're here, check out our list of frequently asked questions.
