Another influential woman in art history might have been overlooked by many. Beatrice Wood played a significant role in the Dada movement, had a romance with Marcel Duchamp, and inspired the character of Rose in James Cameron’s Titanic. She lived to be 105 years old and was a working artist till almost the end.
Corita Kent, also known as Sister Mary Corita, was an artist with an innovative approach to design and education. By the 1960s, her vibrant serigraphs were drawing international acclaim. Her work reflected her concerns about poverty, racism, and war, and her messages of peace and social justice continue to resonate with audiences today.
