Can you think of any famous female artists?

I don't know why the world of art is so dominated by men, but it seems to be. However, things are changing:-

    I have never heard of any of these artists, shame on me.

    I have met Helaine Blumenfeld who is a prominent woman sculptress who lives near Cambridge. She was a friend of an artist friend of mine. I went to a party she held once at her house and saw a lot of her work there and then later in a gallery in the West End. I was very impressed to see some of her art in the Guggenheim in Venice as I never realised she was so acclaimed.

    I know Artemisia Gentileschi, a sixteenth-century female painter. Furthermore Berthe Morisot and Eva Gonzales, French Impressionist painters, both connected to Manet. I also think about Käthe Kollwitz, a German Expressionist artist. But @Lynne you are totally right: art used to be dominated by men.

    Thank you @Cornelia. I hadn't heard of Käthe Kollwitz before.

    The next time I'm in Berlin I will try to visit her museum.

    Katsushika Ōi (葛飾 応為)
    Katsushika Hokusai's daughter.
    She drew some awesome pictures.
    The other day, I watched a TV drama in which she was the protagonist. It was interesting.
    She was not so famous until recently, but people are gradually getting to know her.
