Artists, Muses, Patrons: Women in the Arts

Georgia O'Keeffe (American, 1887-1986), Ranchos Church No. 1, 1929 (detail)

Through the Recognition of Art by Women series of exhibitions (RAW), the Norton Museum of Art has celebrated the achievements of contemporary women artists. However, amazing stories of women in the visual arts - as artists, patrons, and as muses - appear at every turn. From ancient Chinese heroines and Dutch patrons to leaders of the Harlem Renaissance and the New York School, explore remarkable artworks and the artists who created them on this tour.




Through a Norton Lens: A History of Photography

Shirin Neshat (Iranian, born 1957), I am Its Secret, 1993 (detial)

The Photography collection has grown dramatically since a gift of over 600 photographs by Baroness Jeanne von Oppenheim established the collection in the 1990s. Today, the collection encompasses the history of the medium that changed the way we see, beginning with pioneering work by William Henry Fox Talbot, classic images by Edward Weston, Dorothea Lange and Gordon Parks, and including contemporary artists like Shirin Neshat and Graciela Iturbide.
