Join National Museum of Women in the Arts (NMWA) Associate Curator Ginny Treanor and docent Carolyn Higgins for a virtual happy hour as they share artworks and stories about misattributions in the art world.
Why are so many great women artists missing from history books? One reason is that art by many historical women was misattributed to male artists. This phenomenon reaches back as far as certain prehistoric cave paintings—which recent studies suggest may have been made by women—through early modern women artists such as Judith Leyster (1609–1660) and Marie-Denise Villers (1774–1821), whose works were once attributed to men. Learn about how these errors still affect our understanding of art history today.
AJ Johnson, partner and bar director of Serenata, demonstrates how to make a specialty cocktail (or mocktail) in honor of these once-forgotten artists.
