Throughout the ages, Woman has been one of the most central themes in art. Woman has been
portrayed as mother, lover, and ideal beauty. Yet, along with these idealized representations, there is an equally constant cultural current that has negatively portrayed Woman. We will examine the changing portrayal of Woman in art, from the personification of beauty to the perceived arch-enemy of man, temptress, sorceress, and femme fatale that leads man to perdition. We will review artworks from antiquity through the 20th century and discuss the different cultural milieu that influenced artists’ portrayals of Woman. We will also discuss the anti-feminist literature of the same historical periods.
Silver Member: $90; Gold Member: $81.
