This talk focuses on several American women artists working in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, at the time of the Suffragist Movement in this country. While some were active participants in or supporters of women’s right to vote, others of these artists made no references to the cause in their art or recorded words. Nevertheless, they all worked in a time of great social change. How can the challenges and opportunities of the era be seen in their paintings, photography, illustrations, and prints?
