Bridget Riley & others @ The Fitzwilliam Museum

18 May 2021 - 1 March 2022

For centuries, women’s artwork was neglected, their careers thwarted, and their achievements forgotten. Yet, despite the obstacles they faced, many persisted in making art.

Drawing from our rich holdings of paintings, drawings, prints, ceramics and sculpture, this display is the first in an on-going series highlighting work by women throughout the history of art and from across the globe.

This display Women: Makers & Muses, contrasts the way women saw themselves through their art from the beginning of the twentieth century to today with their representation by male artists.

Works include those by Marie Louise von Motesiczky, Bridget Riley and Shawanda Corbett.
