When Photography Becomes a Weapon

When Photography Becomes a Weapon | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

Do critics paint women artists out the picture? | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

There is still a glass ceiling when it comes to recognition. Women are no longer prevented by a guild system from actually training as artists. But they are consistently denied the ultimate accolades of fame and respect. There's an image of supreme excellence in art that still, somehow, assumes a male bloodline of the greats.

What We Wore - A history of fashion from 1720 to 1982 | Studio Art and Art History | Scoop.it

This unusual collection of programmes reveals what it took to be stylish through over 250 years of British history as it explores fashion from 1720 to 1982.
