“Why Have There Been No Great Women Artists?” A Film and Talk Presented by Professor Maurice Mahler


Professor Mahler has presented informative talks about artists in the past, which our audiences have greatly enjoyed. In this talk, he will explore the history of women in achieving true value as artists in a world dominated by the decisions of men and the social attitudes in Europe and America since the 10th century. Artists to be considered include Elizabeth Louise Vigee-Le Brun, Lee Krasner, Louise Nevelson, Elian de Kooning, and Harriett Feigenbaum. The film reveals the stories of the amazing artistic women throughout history from the 15th century to the present. You have seen the paintings - now you will know that the “artist was a woman!”

Professor Mahler teaches at Rutgers University Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI-RU). He is a retired advertising executive and instructor at the School for Visual Arts in New York.
