The Importance of Supporting Women Artists

It is no secret that female artists have, for the most part, been left out of Art History and have struggled to get the same representation and recognition as their male counterparts. However, in recent years there have been increased efforts by institutions around the world to address the gaps in their collections and the imbalanced exhibition opportunities in their programs. Women are finally being recognised for their important role in art movements whilst making new records in auctions. Investing in work by women directly supports female artists, increases demands for their work, helps correct the imbalance in the art market, broadens one collection and is most likely a smart financial decision too. With International Women's Day next week, we think it's the perfect opportunity to remember the importance of supporting female talent. And to help you out we have also made a selection of some favourites works by the incredible female artist in our roster.
