Beginning Saturday, Feb. 10, Professor of Art Sue Johnson’s art historical reinterpretations will be featured in “Women with Vision: Masterworks from the Permanent Collection” at The Muscarelle Museum of Art located on the campus of William & Mary.
The selection presents works by more than 30 women artists including historically important figures such as Marguerite Gérard (1761–1837), Julia Margaret Cameron (1815–1879), Rosa Bonheur (1822–1899), and Mary Cassatt (1844–1926).
“Women with Vision” also offers the opportunity to see art by 20th-century leaders including, Alice Neel, Louise Nevelson, Miriam Schapiro, Cindy Sherman, and Kiki Smith while featuring works by cutting-edge contemporary artists: Carole A. Feuerman, Kay Jackson, Ana Maria Pacheco, and Tania Brassesco (and her partner Lazlo Passi Norberto).
Johnson’s work is among notable recent acquisitions which include Barbara Holtz’s allegorical painting “Prospects” and Maria Larsson’s innovative digital collage.
“Women with Vision: Masterworks from the Permanent Collection” is a special exhibition organized in anticipation of the official commemoration by the College of William & Mary of the 100th anniversary of the first women admitted as undergraduate students during the fall semester of 1918.
