Katy Hessel on The Story of Art Without Men
Join us as art historian and author Katy Hessel discusses her international bestseller, The Story of Art Without Men.
In her popular podcast, on Instagram (@thegreatwomenartists), and in her book, Katy Hessel introduces enthusiasts to a mosaic of artists that have been overlooked in the Western art canon.
From the well-known Élisabeth Vigée Le Brun, Georgia O’Keeffe and Berthe Morisot, to the lesser-known Elisabetta Sirani, Marie-Denise Villers, Lady Butler and many others, Hessel’s The Story of Art Without Men contributes to collective efforts by artists and scholars to change our understanding of art and its creators.
Following the talk, Hessel will be signing copies of her award-winning book, published by W.W. Norton and on sale at the Gallery’s Boutique.
