Women’s Artwork: “The Other Art History”

In what I hope to be an upcoming series, “The Other Art History,” the authors re-write all of the art history books available to you in your schooling and bring you information necessary to think about “Other artists who have largely been excluded (or perhaps more accurately, occluded) from our understanding of movements throughout art history.” Each of these artists are “not a forgotten artist, but tragically, an unknown one.”
In this first installment of the series, the authors walk us through an introduction to “the (mostly) women of Surrealism, subverting the subverters, and throwing Salvador Dalí’s comment about Leonor Fini—that she was “better than most, perhaps. But talent is in the balls,”—straight into a flaming pile of trash where it belongs.”

If you read the article in its entirety, you will see why I add the hashtag #metoo on their behalf .
