The Year of the Woman

1000Museums joined our partner museums all over the world in designating 2020 as the Year of the Woman. Each month of the year features a different woman artist, highlighting her work and life. It's our little way of saying "thank you" to the women who paved the way...


Born in Paris in 1930, this Venezuelan-American artist was primarily known for her sculptural work. Her art most often tackled the concept of sex and gender norms, specifically regarding the traditional roles of women. Marisol was influenced by the Pop art movement, although her style ultimately defies categorization with its use of Dadaism, Surrealism, and pre-Columbian techniques.


Emily Carr was a Canadian painter whose work traces many different influences across her diverse oeuvre. Many of her early sketches and paintings were inspired by the indigenous people of the pacific northwest coast after several influential trips to Aboriginal villages. Carr is credited as the first artist to introduce Fauvism to Vancouver.


Mary Evelyn De Morgan was a British painter associated with the Pre-Raphaelite Movement. Her works famously contain themes of the female figure, spirituality, pacifism, and a rejection of material wealth – with a heavy emphasis on allegory.


Sonia Delaunay was a Jewish-French artist who, with her husband Robert Delaunay and others, cofounded the Orphism art movement, noted for its use of strong colors and geometric shapes. Her work extends to painting, textile design and stage set design.


Agnes Lawrence Pelton was a modernist painter who was born in Germany and moved to the United States as a child. She studied art in the United States and Europe. She made portraits of Pueblo Native Americans, desert landscapes and still lifes. Pelton’s work evolved through at least three distinct themes: her early “Imaginative Paintings,” art of the American Southwest people and landscape, and abstract art that reflected her spiritual beliefs.


Swedish artist Hilma af Klint created large abstract paintings starting in 1906, well before such artists as Wassily Kandinsky explored non-representational imagery. She felt that people were not ready for her paintings since they were so radical so she seldom exhibited during her life. Over a century later, we can appreciate her art with an entirely new perspective.


Lee Krasner was an American artist, best known for her work with collage paintings and the abstract expressionism movement. Krasner was taught to paint academically but later became inspired by post-Impressionism. Lee Krasner later joined the American Abstract Artists in 1940 and subsequently met future abstract expressionists. She became disinterested in hard geometric forms after meeting her future husband, Jackson Pollock.


Artemisia Gentileschi was an Italian Baroque artist who was best known for her self-portraits and her depictions of Biblical stories. She was admired by the most respected artists of her time and garnered the favor and protection of influential people, including Cosimo II de' Medici and Galileo Galilei.


Alma Thomas explored the power of color and form in her luminous, abstract paintings. Her paintings make our eyes dance with their patterns, rhythm, and jazzy hues. 
Alma Thomas, Watusi (Hard Edge)


Combining reality and fantasy, Frida Kahlo helped her viewers see the magic and mysteriousness of everyday life. Kahlo’s life was a harrowing reality of physical and psychological pain, but she depicts that pain with a touch of magic. Kahlo was a woman of color who proudly represented her Mexican heritage and was a true inspiration to artists, art fans, and many others.


Dorothea Lange influenced generations of photojournalists and photographers. Her images brought the plight of the poor and forgotten to the public's attention.

But most of all, Lange’s photos show us the resilience, dignity, and individuality of the people she photographed.


A woman artist in a man’s world. This extremely talented woman fought against preconceptions about women's roles in society and in the arts. She was one of the founders of the Impressionist movement and we believe she should be better known. Meet leading lady Berthe Morisot!


Perhaps no other artist deserves the title of American Artist more than Georgia O’Keeffe.

Unlike many of her contemporaries, O’Keeffe wasn’t inspired by French or Italian artists. She didn’t make the typical artist’s pilgrimage to the great cities of European art until later in life. She steadfastly separated herself from international art trends of her time, including Cubism. Instead, she was inspired by the natural and man-built beauty of North America. She was inspired by flowers, lakes, deserts, big skies, sky-scrapers, and canyons.


A painter, mixed media sculptor, performance artist, writer, teacher and lecturer, Faith Ringgold has worked across a wide range of media but is best known for her story quilts. Her work is greatly influenced by African art.
