In honor of women’s history month, let’s take a moment to celebrate all things female. From female empowerment to inventions made by women, we are combining art and the female experience. Whether it’s great art created by women, portraits of the female form, or art inspired by famous women, it’s women’s history month and we are ready to rally around the woman.
Many amazing works of art have been created by women throughout history. From rock´n roll photography in Rolling Stone by Annie Leibovitz to the paintings of Georgia O’Keeffe, women have been creating incredible works of art since the beginning of time.
Female artists aren’t just limited to the greats. There are countless original pieces of art created by women around the world every day. According to Nine Dot Arts, 51% of visual artists are women, and that number is growing every year.
When women aren’t creating the art, often they are subjects themselves. According to USA Today, the world’s most famous painting is Leonardo Da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, which is a portrait of a woman seen by over six million people every year in Paris.
Moving away from paintings, women have been an essential subject for artists of all types, from the Depression-era painting of the migrant mother to sculptures of Greek goddesses.
Honor a woman in your life with a painting from Zaista. Support a female artist, or find a painting of a woman you admire. Hang your paintings in prominent locations and inspire those around you to reach and achieve, just like you, and the remarkable women in the arts.
