[edit] Information

The Story of Women and Art Professor Amanda Vickery explores the hidden journey of female creativity in Western art. From the cloistered world of Renaissance Italy and Catholic Spain, through an era of revolution and enlightenment in Britain and France, to the harsh desert landscape of New Mexico of the early 20th century, Professor Vickery will uncover the incredible stories of talented and tenacious women who throughout history have overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles to fulfil their artistic ambitions. Spanning 500 years and ending mid-20th century, the series will reveal a dazzling array of artistry - much of which has been too easily forgotten. But through the stories of some of the key artists of the period, Amanda will show the myriad ways creative women have made a vital and significant contribution to our art history.

[edit] Part 2

Professor Amanda Vickery's journey to uncover the story of female creativity reaches the 18th Century. The focus turns to the industrial powerhouse that is Britain and the glittering French Court of Marie Antoinette. Despite being regarded as second class citizens when it came to art this was an era when ingenious women seized a galaxy of fresh opportunities to stamp their creativity on the age; from a designer who would revitalise the British silk industry to a painter who would immortalise the Ancient Regime.

[edit] Part 3

In the final programme of the series, Professor Amanda Vickery explores the explosion of creative opportunities for women as the 20th Century dawned. Travelling from London and Paris to the remote Swedish countryside and the bleak desert landscape of New Mexico; this was a time where western women were demanding ever increasing roles across society and female artists found the strength to push the boundaries of art even further.
