Announcement: A New Illustrated Database for Women Artists Spans the 15th to 19th Centuries

From the announcement:

A Space of Their Own aims to compile the most comprehensive resource to date for information on female artists active in the United States and Europe during this time…

Begun in 2017 and expected to launch by the fall of 2019, A Space of Their Own is the brainchild of the late Jane Fortune, founder of AWA. Fortune considered the project an outgrowth of her work researching and exhibiting under-appreciated Italian woman artists, and approached Gealt to direct the research.

To date, the project has compiled a (continuously growing) master list of 643 individual artists, reached out to over 2,000 museums, and recently put out a public request for information on women artists in European collections.
