Saatchi Art Debuts a Celebration of Women In The Art World

In honor of women’s history month, Saatchi Art — the online gallery which has created a butterfly effect in the genre of contemporary art, by fusing their online database of prestigious collections with eager collectors looking for art advisory free of charge — is debuting their first campaign celebrating women in the art world.

Lending a close lens to the generation of women who “refuse to be the muse” and rather create some of the most vibrant and one of a kind pieces in the art world today, Saatchi Art is representing through their all-women catalog a panorama of works by artists such as Erin Armstrong, Lisa Hunt, and Lisa Krannichfeld who have broken a barrier of the female subject who is typically identified as the muse. Instead, these iconic women have stood in front of canvas and produced extraordinary works like NATURA by Ysabel LeMay and Save Me by Cindy Press.

Hand chosen by in house Chief Curator Rebecca Wilson, this special edition catalogue includes works by rising talent from around the globe such as the United Kingdom, Argentina, and France.

But this all female campaign isn’t the first time Saatchi Art has positioned women in the spotlight. Saatchi Art has been devoted to drawing attention to women for the past few years, determined to successfully host equal representation between men and women in the art system. According to Saatchi Art, women outnumber men in art school but constitute only 30% of artists on display in museums and galleries.

In honor of Women’s History Month, Saatchi Art is driving a change, celebrating their best in show female artists who “refuse to be the muse” and instead the Picasso, Warhol, or Koon.
