In celebration of Women’s History Month, the Journal of the Month for March 2013 is Women in the Arts.
Women in the Arts is published three times a year as a benefit for members of the National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. The museum brings recognition to the achievements of women artists of all periods and nationalities by exhibiting, preserving, acquiring, and researching art by women and by teaching the public about their accomplishments.
Volume 31, no. 1 features:
“A World Apart: Anna Ancher and the Skagen Art Colony”—Innovative painter Anna Ancher (1859-1935) was an integral part of a seaside artists’ community at Skagen, in northern Denmark. Her landscapes, interiors, and portraits are remarkable for their light-filled Impressionist technique and their anticipation of the twentieth century.
“Freya Grand: Minding the Landscape”—Grand’s landscapes express a profound connection with the earth, evoking the exhilaration, wonder, and serenity she experiences when traveling to remote sites.
“Exploring the Archives”—NMWA’s Archives of Women Artists contains the papers of artist Edna Reindel, who created iconic paintings of WWII-era women at work.
