Het oog wil ook wat: Vrouwen als opdrachtgevers, verzamelaars en kunstenaars

Jitske Jasperse

Sterck & de Vreese, 2021


Women as clients, artists and collectors. Women in art history are often portrayed as portrayed figures and nudes. This book shows that they were much more than eye-catchers. Women like Eleanor of Aquitaine, Clara Peeters and Peggy Guggenheim were clients, artists and collectors. They contributed significantly to the creation of art and the design of society. Spanning the period from the Middle Ages to the twentieth century, the female eye also wants something discusses the impact of women through a wide variety of art forms: paintings, sculpture, miniature portraits, ivory caskets, stained glass and photography. Jasperse inspires to look at art with different eyes and in this way makes the male genius tumble from its pedestal. Jitske Jasperse studied art history at the Free University and University of Amsterdam. She is currently a lecturer and researcher at the Humboldt University in Berlin. In Dutch!
