The Girl Who Inspired Picasso and Matisse
So often, our collective history is told through the work + actions of men. And we are told that this is because there simply weren’t women doing those things at that time — often because we weren’t allowed to.
For a long time, I believed this.
I trusted that the lack of representation of women (and other disenfranchised groups) was due to a lack of production, activity, participation on their part. We can’t show what doesn’t exist, right?
