Artist-led tour by Annie Kevans: Women and the History of Art
13 May 2014 at 11:30 am - 12:30 pm
Join us (after Cibber at Handel House if you wish, see separate event) to meet artist Annie Kevans who will talk us through her latest series, Women and the History of Art, highlighting women in art history who were once part of the art world and whose history and significance have been gradually eroded. For this exhibition Kevans presents over thirty new paintings that depict successful women artists, opening up a dialogue about their importance and significance. Although many have been championed in the last decades having been ‘rediscovered’ by later art historians, these women remain ‘separate’ from art history. Portraits include Annie Sofonisba Anguissola, Lavinia Fontana, and Berthe Morisot II to name a few. Annie Kevans has had solo exhibitions in New York, London and Vienna. She has been a finalist in the Women of the Future awards and the Jerwood Drawing Prize. Her work can be found in the Pallant House Gallery, the David Roberts Collection, 21c Museum and the Saatchi Collection. Kevans is currently exhibiting a series of works commissioned by Jean Paul Gaultier at his Barbican show, From the Sidewalk to The Catwalk. Patrons/Friends/Guests: free.
