Take a lunch break and learn with Londoner Catherine McCormack, founder and course director of the Women and Art study program at Sotheby’s Institute of Art.

Her new book, Women in the Picture: What Culture Does with Female Bodies, ranges through Western art―think Titian, Botticelli, and Millais―and the image-saturated world of fashion photographs, advertisements, and social media, illuminating assumptions behind ancient stereotypes women have been assigned: Venus, maiden, wife, mother, monster.

Works by women artists like Morisot, Ringgold, Lacy, and Walker offer alternative directions for exploring women’s identity, sexuality, race, and power in more complex ways.

Note this is a virtual book talk; registrants will receive the link to join online.
