Bruce Weber, Senior Curator, 19th and 20th Century Art, National Academy Museum, leads a gallery talk on some of the highlights of Women Sculptors of the Academy. The talk takes place on July 27 at the National Academy Museum, 1083 5th Avenue in New York.
The twenty works in Women Sculptors of the National Academy reflect the evolution of American sculpture between the late 19th and 20th centuries and celebrate the special achievements and contributions of women artists to the medium. The works vary in subject from classical allegory in Evelyn Beatrice Longman’s Victory to Nancy Grossman’s politically charged Gunhead, and from the ethnic references of Elizabeth Catlett’s Fluted Head to the sexually infused work of Louise Bourgeois’ Untitled (Germinal).
