Look for Art Herstory Female Old Master 6-packs at SLAM
The lovely shops at the Saint Louis Art Museum now carry Art Herstory boxed sets of note cards. Each set contains six note cards, envelopes, and Art Herstory logo seals. Each card features a work by one of these female Old Masters: Artemisia Gentileschi, Judith Leyster, Louise Moillon, Clara Peeters, Sofonisba Anguissola, and Maria Schalcken.
The painting by Maria Schalcken, which is reproduced on an Art Herstory note card, is currently visiting the Saint Louis Art Museum (SLAM)! From now until January 2020, you can see this artwork in the special exhibition “Dutch Painting in the Age of Rembrandt from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.” Also in this exhibition is a work by Rachel Ruysch, another Dutch woman artist: Still Life with Flowers, 1709.
And SLAM has a wonderful permanent collection, featuring works of art of the highest quality, across time and cultures. Fans of women artists will particularly want to see Danaë, a painting by Artemisia Gentileschi; The Artist’s Brother, by Elisabeth-Louise Vigée LeBrun; and Angelica Kauffmann’s Woman in Turkish Dress.
Admission to the Museum is free every day. Admission to main exhibitions is free on Fridays.
There are so many reasons for art lovers to pay a visit to SLAM! And while you are there, visit the gorgeous shops. They offer a mouthwatering display of unique items, including, now, Art Herstory note cards.
