In conjunction with the special exhibition O’Keeffe, Stettheimer, Torr, Zorach: Women Modernists in New York, this mini-course examines the lives and work of four artists who developed their modern styles between 1910 and 1935. While their identity as women shaped how they worked and limited the reception of their art, this course offers an opportunity to explore the shared challenges they faced and re-assess their individual achievements as artists.
