Three decades after The Guerilla Girls, a feminist art collective, famously asked “Do Women Have To Be Naked To Get Into The Met.Museum?” a study of major US art museums found that 87% of artists in their collections are men, while 85% are white. Little progress has been made diversifying the art world in the past 30 years – while women earn up to 75% of fine art degrees, only 13% of artists represented in European and North American galleries are female.
At Cynefn we specialise in reproduction art, retouching and restoring each piece to its former glory – but we also strive to promote artists who were traditionally under-represented during their lifetimes. Women especially were often dismissed as amateurs, it wasn’t unusual for their work to be attributed to a significant male in their lives – or completely forgotten after their deaths. Often the artists’ students, husbands or male contemporaries became familiar household names, while the artists themselves remained relatively unknown.
