“If you walk into the best-known museums, you might think the art world is a world without women. Sure, they’re in the pictures hanging on the walls. They’re in the galleries looking at the art. But even though half of all visual artists today are women, only 5% of the art on display in museums is by female artists.”
Susan Fisher Sterling – National Museum of Women in the Arts
“Before I put brush to canvas, I question, ’Is this mine? …Is it influenced by some idea which I have acquired from some man? …I am trying with all my skill to do a painting that is all of women, as well as all of me.”
