Women of Modern Art

Notable women of Modern Art—Mary Cassatt, Meret Oppenheim, Käthe Kollwitz, and Sonia Delaunay, to name a few—are memorialized in the art canon as nothing short of revolutionaries, helping to alter the course of art history by ushering in radical new forms of expression, while at the same time confronting long-standing gender barriers in the art world. In recent years, many historically overlooked Modern women artists are getting their due at major museum shows, including Hilma af Klint’s blockbuster show at the Guggenheim, Georgia O’Keeffe’s landmark survey at Tate Modern, and Frida Kahlo’s sold-out show at the Brooklyn Museum. Some of the most expensive works ever sold in this category include O’Keeffe’s Jimson Weed/White Flower No. 1
