The Year of the Woman

1000Museums has joined our partner museums all over the world in designating 2020 as the Year of the Woman. Each month 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...

2021 Update: As we began to dive in, there were just too many talented women artists to end the campaign after just one year. So we've extended our celebration through March 2021! Please continue to check back in to meet our monthly featured artists.

JANUARY 2021

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.

December 2020

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.

November 2020

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.

October 2020

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.

September 2020

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.

August 2020

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.

July 2020

This month, we honor four black women artists who painted a picture of strength in the midst of injustice. As our team researched the incredible stories of each of these women, we were so impressed, we couldn't select just one. Please welcome Elizabeth CatlettRose PiperBarbara Jones-Hogu, and Alma Thomas as we celebrate their art and lives!

June 2020

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.
 

May 2020

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.

APRIL 2020

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 our April leading lady, Berthe Morisot!

March 2020

For Women’s History Month, we featured all-time American favorite Georgia O’Keeffe, whose show Georgia O’Keeffe: Abstract Variations was featured in March at our partner, the Seattle Art Museum!

February 2020

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.

February celebrates both the Year of the Woman and Black History Month. We are so proud to feature African American artist Faith Ringgold.

January 2020

Our January woman is American Impressionist Mary Cassatt, and in particular, the Mary Cassatt’s Women show at our partner the McNay Museum. View paintings of women by one of the leading women painters of all time!
