DescriptionMatthew Jarron, Curator, University of Dundee Museum Services
This online exhibition contains a selection of artworks by accomplished women artists represented in the University of Dundee Museum Collections. Their work is as varied in subject and technique as these women were in personality, experience and background. Some of the women represented here achieved outstanding success, helping to define the artistic movements and eras in which they participated. Others were less well-known in their day but deserve greater appreciation. Some are still actively shaping their careers today.
The exhibition has been curated by museum intern Mattea Gernentz.
