Library Sponsors Program About Women Artists

Swartz’s presentation will provide a broad overview of the main figures of the Medieval, Renaissance and Modern Eras, including Hildegard of Bingen, Artemisia Gentileschi, Rosa Bonheur and Georgia O’Keeffe. She will also discuss why women did not have a major role in art until the modern period.
