This presentation will focus on three great female artists from different backgrounds. Georgia Totto O'Keeffe was an American artist best known for her paintings of enlarged flowers, New York skyscrapers, and New Mexico landscapes. Georgia O'Keeffe has been recognized as the "Mother of American Modernism.” Mary Stevenson Cassatt known for her paintings and prints of women’s social life and mother and child. She has been called “one of the three great ladies" of Impressionism. Frida Kahlo's work as an artist remained relatively unknown until the late 1970s, when her work was rediscovered by art historians and political activists. By the early 1990s, not only had she become a recognized figure in art history, but she was also regarded as an icon the feminism movement and the LGBTQ+ movement. Kahlo's work has been celebrated internationally as emblematic of Mexican national and indigenous traditions. All three women had to overcome gender barriers in their respective field to emerge as three of the greatest artists of their time.
