By all these lovely tokens
September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

Helen Hunt Jackson - September
The breezes taste
Of apple peel.
The air is full
Of smells to feel-
Ripe fruit, old footballs,
Burning brush,
New books, erasers,
Chalk, and such.
The bee, his hive,
Well-honeyed hum,
And Mother cuts
Chrysanthemums.
Like plates washed clean
With suds, the days
Are polished with
A morning haze.

John Updike, September

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.
