In history, being able to create art has been a luxury which most people could not manage. Also, there is the endurance factor. A lot of art created by women would have been made for practical use, rather than decorating a church. So the art would not survive many generations and it would not be thought of as art so much as a useful tool.

Do critics paint women artists out the picture?

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