My 100th Hub

I joined HubPages on October 14, 2011, but I didn't publish my first Hub, Claustrophobia and the MRI Machine, until November 19, 2011. Women Painters, published on October 20, 2012 is my 100th Hub. It contains photographs of 100 paintings by women artists from the sixteenth through the twenty-first centuries. Most of these women are less well-known than their male counterparts, but they are not less talented.

16th Century Women Painters

Paintings by the following artists are featured in this section.

  • Sofonisba Anguissola (1530/35 to 1625) was an Italian late Renaissance portrait painter. She was a pioneer in the art world—the first woman who found acceptance as an art student—paving the way for future generations of women to study art.

    The second of Anguissola's paintings shown below is a portrait of Catalina Micaela (Catherine Michaela), second daughter of King Felipe II of Spain and his third wife Elisabeth of Valois, Duchess of Savoy.

    The third of Anguissola's paintings is a portrait of King Felipe II. It was painted while he was married to Elisabeth of Valois, Duchess of Savoy. Sofonisba Anguissola was lady-in-waiting to Elisabeth of Valois, and her painting teacher.

  • Lavinia Fontana (1552 to 1614), Italian

Wow, that's quite a collection and very interesting! I think I like the featured one of Rachel Ruysch the best.

My grandmother was an avid painter on both canvas and china painting. She has always hoped one of the grandchildren would share her talent but none of us really had it.

I have to say that I have never really considered women painters of the past. You hear a lot of the men, but the women are not highlighted. Fascinating! You have done them a great justice and tribute in writing of them here.

Thanks for reading my article and commenting. My major in college was Fine Arts. We studied many schools of painting throughout those four years, but women artists weren't mentioned very much.

As I mentioned in my article, "most of these women are less well-known than their male counterparts, but they are not less talented."

Congratulations on your 100th Hub Daisy. This hub is very well-presented and organized. These paintings are exquisite! I was not familiar with many of these women painters. The self-portrait of Mary Cassat holding the baby is lovely as well as the Croatian flower pot (Circa 1890). The Danish flower is very nice too. Dangerous Game is cool. Thank you for sharing.

One of the things which amazes me is how well-preserved some of the paintings are. Sofonisba Anguissola painted in the 16th century. Her work doesn't appear to have deteriorated very much.

What a Wonderful hub! You did an amazing job selecting artists and works to feature. A fabulous idea to highlight women artisits. Until now, whenever I thought of artists before the 19th century, I always envisioned a male. That has changed thanks to you. Thank you for that. It is a wonderful thing to broaden ones view of the world.

This makes me want to visit a museum. It has been far too long. Art is so much more beautiful in person.

Congrats on number 100. Well done.

Dana,

Thanks for viewing the paintings and adding your comment. I appreicate your very kind words.

I discovered the work of Sofonisba Anguissola, the Italian artist who lived from 1530/35 to 1625, while I was looking for some other paintings on Wikimedia Commons. I was blown away by the quality of her work. I had been trying to come up with a special subject for my 100th Hub, and I decided to see if I could find 100 paintings on Wikimedia Commons which were painted by women. I'm so pleased that I succeeded.

Fantastic hub! I would only add two more names: Frida Kahlo and Tamara de Lempicka. Voted up and shared.

Mike,

It's nice to see you again. Thanks for reading my article and adding your comment. Thanks, too, for sharing my Hub.

Neither of the women painters you mentioned could be included in my article because their estates haven't given permission for their work to be included in online articles, and none of their paintings are in the public domain. Frida Kahlo, the Mexican painter, died in 1954. Tamara de Lempicka, the art deco painter from Poland, died in 1980.

What an amazing hub of great women painters. I never even think of women as the artists back in the day. Saying that I much prefer the 'old masters' ladies paintings above, than the modern, we seem to have lost something over the last few years, wonderful hub, nell

Nell,

Thanks for reading my article and posting your comment. I wanted to do something special for my 100th Hub, and since my 4-year college degree is in Fine Arts, I thought that showcasing 100 paintings by women artists would be a great idea.

The works by the women "old masters" were new to me. I learned a lot while doing the research for this article.

My showcasing 100 paintings by women artists was well worth the time it took me to create the Hub.

What a comprehensive hub! A great gallery and display, thank you. I particularly enjoyed the Russian and Croatian pictures by artists I've never heard of, but that's the nature of the painting world - male dominated it seems!

Interesting that, for its size and cultural history, I've never seen work by or heard of a female artist from China. There must be hundreds of them working away somewhere!

I want to share this rare hub.

It's nice to "see" you again. Thanks for reading my article and adding your comment. I appreciate your kind words and your sharing my Hub.

I have a four-year degree in Fine Arts. I took several art history courses in college and was especially interested in painting. I could remember reading about and seeing the paintings of a few women artists, but it was just a few. I decided to investigate the subject of women painters for my 100th Hub and was pleased to find so many examples in Wikimedia Commons of paintings I could showcase.

This is a wonderful collection of women artists and examples of their work! I thin that women artists get short shrift in the art world, and this certainly proves that women artists are equally as talented as the male artists of their times. So many of these paintings are simply amazing! Thanks for a wonderfully researched and beautiful hub!

Stephanie.

Thanks for reading my article and commenting in it. I appreciate your very kind words.

When it was time for me to write my 100th article for HubPages, I thought a long time about what I should write. I wanted to showcase 100 of "something."

I went back to my college days and all the art history courses I took. I couldn't remember studying very much about *women painters*. I thought I had found my subject, but I needed 100 legally-attributable images for my article. I was so glad I found on Wikimedia Commons the paintings I could use.

WOW! This hub must of taken some time finding all those photos and putting it together. What a wonderful list. It is so interesting to learn about artists and women artist do not seem to get the same esteem as their males.

One of my favorite female artists was not on your list. Frida Kahlo.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 3 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Carly,

Thanks fo reading my article and adding your comment. Nearly all of my Hubs are non-fiction, requiring research time, some of them quite a bit.

This article took much more time than any of the others to research. Finding 100 legally attributable images was not easy.

Frida Kahlo, the Mexican painter, died in 1954. Her work could not be included in my article because her estate hasn't given permission for her creations to be included in online articles, and none of her paintings are in the public domain.

Daisy ~ I have recently found myself becoming interested and curious about women painters. When I found this hub I couldn't believe my eyes!

You have presented these magnificent paintings along with informative news. You've undoubtedly spent hours researching. A perfect 100th hub.

I couldn't ask for anything more. Up across and sharing everywhere. Hugs!

Hi Daisy, I just wrote a hub on Frida Kahlo, and had the same problem of her work not being in the public domain. It is frustrating that we have to wait over 70 years for an artist to be dead before it will be available. I love your hub and appreciate the immense amount of work you put into it.

I wanted to publish something meaningful for my 100th Hub. I thought about it for quite a while, and then like a lightning bolt striking me, the idea hit me...with my four-year degree in Fine Arts and my certification to teach art in K-12, I'll write about women artists and showcase 100 paintings.

I didn't calculate how long it took me to research and write this article, but it was quite a few days. I was having such a good time doing the research, I didn't mind at all.


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Carly,

Thanks for stopping by again. Thank, too, for your very kind words about my article.

There are a few different rules and regulations regarding which images are legal to use, not just the one about the artist having died at least 70 years ago. Even if an artist has been gone 100 years, it might not be legal to use images of the work in a Hub...the artist's estate might have renewed the copyright on the work.


CarlySullens profile image

CarlySullens 3 years ago from St. Louis, Missouri

Maybe you can write a hub about that. When can are famous works of art cleared for use? :)


Daisy Mariposa profile image

Daisy Mariposa 3 years ago from Orange County (Southern California) Author

Carly,

Copyright law is not something about which a non-attorney should write. It would be too difficult to write an article on the subject without giving advice, and giving advice about copyright law would be illegal to do.

The article about legal use of images is in the HubPages Learning Center. That's really all the information an HP author needs.

Mary Cassatt is one of the more well-known of the women artists. I didn't have any problem finding paintings of hers to showcase.

Very interesting and informative hub. I do not recall having been introduced to female artists in my one art appreciation class in under graduate studies. When we study the old masters, females are not included. Thanks for enlightening me.

It's nice to meet you. Welcome to HubPages. Thanks for reading my article and commenting in it.

Don't feel badly about your not having been introduced to women artists in your art appreciation class. My university degree is in Fine Arts, and I'm certified to teach art in Kindergarten through the 12th grade. I didn't learn about women artists when I was in school, either. My knowledge was gained from the books I read on my own and the research I did for this article.

Great hub. Even though i have invested a fair portion of my cyber-search time on knowing about paintings, but i have never strained my energies much while acquainting myself with female art. But this hub has changed my opinions a bit. I might just find myself buying a few books on female artists in particular, and all this ignition is attributable to your hub.

one again nice work.

Daisy,

What a colorful and talented journey your hub has taken me on. I loved the 17th through the 20th Century paintings of the women artist.

A remarkable list of paintings and very beautifully detailed, they were perfect in my eyes.

Thanks and I voted up +++++ because this was one of the best articles about women artists on the internet.

I wanted to publish a special article as my 100th Hub. My 4-year degree is in Fine Arts. I decided to see if I could find 100 legally-attributable paintings by women artists.

This Hub took the longest amount of time for me to research of any of my Hubs. I thought I would never finish. I was tempted to give up more than once.

I hadn't heard of many, perhaps most, of the artists. They were not mentioned in the art history courses I took in college. I hope students find this article helpful and can use it as a resource tool.

Hi,

I am like Nell Rose---I returned for another view. This is one of my favorite hubs of yours and I am sure I will see it again in the future.

Amazing talented artist---some are as clean as a photo---such tiny strokes were used by some. Great works of art.

Have a great new week Daisy.

I will share with Twitter and pin on my re-pin board.

Good evening, Daisy; a subject that has always fascinated me. You have done a wonderful job of presenting women's art works through the years. I grew up with an artist mother and sister, so in our family, women were encouraged to draw, sculpt and paint. ~Marilyn
