In fact, there were a multitude of women who achieved artistic brilliance and professional success since the early 1500s. In this video, professional artist Jill Poyerd guides the viewer through the lives of some of the most successful women painters prior to the Second World War, touching on their struggles, the limits they pushed, and how they lined up with some of the most famous masters in history.
