Celebrating women artists
Women artists were airbrushed from history for too long. It is time for a change! On this International Women's Rights Day, Art Explora honors the producers of content that give female artists the recognition they deserve. Discover our selection of podcasts and videos series to (re)discover those women artists.

Fiona Alderton takes a tour of some of the paintings painted by women in the National Gallery collection, including:
🎨 Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun, who painted portraits of Marie Antoinette and fled the French Revolution
🎨 Rosa Bonheur, who obtained the French authorities’ permission to wear men’s clothes so she could paint without harassment,
🎨 Rachel Ruysch, whose Dutch still life masterpieces often sold for more in her lifetime than Rembrandt’s did in his,
and many more.
