Barbara Nessim the Victoria and Albert Museum

Barbara Nessim the Victoria and Albert Museum | Feminism Now | Scoop.it

Women who built careers as illustrators in “Mad Men”-era New York were few and far between, and one is Barbara Nessim. In the early 1960s she became known for brightly colored pop portraits of women, made with fluid, expressive lines, which appeared in Esquire, Harper’s Bazaar and girlie magazines. During feminism’s rise in the early ’70s her focus on women and gender roles drew the interest of publications covering women’s issues, like Ms. (Gloria Steinem was once her roommate), New York and Time. In the ’80s Ms. Nessim became one of the first illustrators to work with computers, which may be how she is best known today.

 

“Barbara Nessim: An Artful Life,” Victoria and Albert Museum, London,  through May 19.
